Gov. Sargent Wants Students on Boards of Trustees 

WORCESTER -- Gov. Francis 
W. Sargent will soon file legisla- 
tion to give students a voice in 
the governing of state colleges and 
universities. His purpose, Sargent 
said is to "move protest from 
confrontation to dialogue." 

"It is my hope --more my ur- 
gent recommendation- that what I 
propose today becomes a pattern 
across the nation, in private and 
public education alike," he said. 
The Droposal was made at last 

week's Holy Cross College Com- 

Sargent proposed: 

—One voting member on each 
board of trustees of the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts, Lowell 
Technological Institute and South- 
eastern Massachusetts University 
be elected from the student body 
of each institution. 

—One student would be elected 
from each community college to 
form an advisory committee to the 

Massachusetts Board of Regional 
Community Colleges, and then one 
of their committee would be elected 
to become a voting member of the 
Regional Community College 
Board of Trustees. 

—One student from each state 
college would be elected to form an 
advisory commitee to the board of 
trustees. One member of the com- 
mittee would be elected a voting 
member of the state colleges' 

Lederle Backs ROTC 

John W. Lederle, president of 
the University of Massachusetts, 
is one of 15 state college heads 
to endorse ROTC on university 

Lederle is a member of the 
executive committee of the Nat- 
ional Assn. of State Universities 
and Land Grant Colleges which 
termed "most appropriate" the 
presence of officer-education pro- 
grams on the campus. 

A STATEMENT, adopted un- 
animously, notes, "Society 
depends on its institutions of higher 
education to furnish educated 
leadership in a wide variety of 
roles and occupations. 

"These include professionally - 
trained individuals for service in 
government at all levels, local, 
state and national." 

Speaking for 113 major state and 
land grant colleges, the committee 
said that these institutions have 
"traditionally taken leadership in 
offering opportunities for both pro- 

fessional and general education for 
those entering the various pursuits 
and professions of life. 

THE STATEMENT defends edu- 
cation of officers on college cam- 
puses as a guarantee against creat- 
ing a military clique or establish- 
ment because the students come 
from a variety of backgrounds.

Over 3000 Attend SummerSession 
any Events by Arts Program 

UMass has begun its busiest 
summer to date. 

An estimated 8200 are expected 
for regular summer sessions at 
Amherst and Boston, the first 
running June 10 -July 18 and the 
second July 22-Aug. 29. An ad- 
ditional 1000 are scheduled to at- 
tend 15 special institutes and study 
programs at Amherst, Nantucket 
and abroad. Conferences at Am- 
herst are expected to draw over 
6000 more. 

A resident chamber music 
group, the Hollander String Quar- 
tet, is an innovation for this year's 
Summer Arts Program at 

Amherst. The UMass summer 
repertory company will present 
new plays and there will be a 
variety of concerts, art shows, and 
lectures plus a film program. The 
arts program shifts its focus to the 
Southwest Residence Area this 
year. Planned there is a satel- 
lite Student Union, outdoor con- 
certs, and art shows in Berkshire 

Of the estimated 8200 summer 
session students, 1200 will be at 
Boston and 7000 at Amherst. In 
the Amherst group will be 300 
Swing Shift freshmen, beginning an 
U-week session today. The group 
will complete the equivalent of a 
first semester this summer, stay 
out for the fall semester and 
rejoin their classmates for the 
1970 spring semester. The plan

'Political and Dirty' __j 

The Paul Winter Contemporary 
Consort will appear in concert as 
part of the 1969 Summer Arts 
Program at UMass tomorrow 
evening, June 17th. The event 
will be held outdoors at the Mall, 
Southwest Residential College, at 
8:00 p.m. and will be open to the 
public without charge courtesy of 
the Summer Arts Program. A 
brochure describing the series 
may be obtained by writing Fine 
Arts Council, 125 Herter Hall, 


The Paul Winter Contemporary 
Consort is a group of young 
musicians which is developing an 
original idiom of music and a 
unique synthesis of symphonic or- 
chestration, folk music and jazz. 
The seven piece consort, which 
includes alto saxaphone, cello, 
English horn, alto flute, classi- 
cal guitar, 21 string guitar, bass, 
and a variety of folk percussion 
centering on a set of tuned brazil- 
Ian drums, is an ensemble which 

blends to create a distinctively 
rich sonority. 

The Consort's repertoire is 
broad, including Blues, Bach Can- 
tatas, Folk pieces from such 
nations as Spain, Russia, Israel 
and England (and many African 
countries), and original composi- 
tions by contemporary composers 
such as Peter Seeger, Bob Dylan 
and the Beatles, as well as Bartok, 
Carl Orff and Villa- Lobos. The 
State Department sent the group 
on a six month tour of 23 coun- 
tries in Latin America which cul- 
minated in a White House perfor- 
mance, the first jazz concernt 
mance, the first jazz concert ever 
held there. 

This past season saw the consort 
in appearances throughout the 
nation, including one at Amherst 
College, and as soloists with the 
Springfield Symphony Orchestra. 
In case of Inclement weather, 
the concert will be held in Bowker 

BOSTON - Massachusetts Medi- 
cal School Dean Lamar Soutter 
Friday bitterly attacked the study 
released this week by Gov. Francis 
W. Sargent's office on possible 
alternatives to constructing the 
planned $125 -million medical 

"We had anticipated that the 
governor would take a hard look 
at the medical school," said 
Soutter, "but we expected a 
thorough, fair look. 

"Dirty Look" 
"I think that what we got was 
a dirty look," he said. 

He charged that the report, 
prepared by Dr. Leon S. White 
of the Massachusetts Institute 
of Technology Sloan School of 
Management, contained "a 
large number of errors and con- 
clusions based on those errors." 
He said he believed the report 
was "entirely political" and that 
it is loaded in favor of the 
fourth alternative proposed - that 
of building a system of small com- 
munity colleges, including one in 
the Springfield area, for medical 

"This plan would be totally un- 
acceptable to the University 

of Massachusetts," Soutter said, 
and the governor would be left 
with the alternative of sub- 
sidizing private medical schools 
in Boston to take on state 
medical students. 

He said this action would be 
unconstitutional and it would be 
1972 before the Legislature 
could possibly put through a 
constitutional amendment to en- 
able it. 

"It could end up more costly 
than our own state medical 
school, with cost escalations," 
Soutter said. 

He said he and his medical 
school faculty agree that com- 
munity schools could never 
obtain qualified instructors or 
become accredited. 

He added that the project is 
"1 1 1 e g a 1" because UMass 
trustees on two occasions and 
the members of the General 
Court on three have voted on the 
"medical school in Worcester." 

In regard to the proposed al- 
ternative of omitting the planned 
teaching hospital and renovating 
Worcester City Hospital, Soutter 
said $35 million in federal funds 

already pledged for die medica 
school project would be lost under 
this plan. 

" Anyone who thinks the federal 
government will give us any money 
after the present plan is thrown 
out, has got another thought 
coming," he said. 

Soutter said he felt Sargent and 
administration commissioner 
Donald R. Dwight "are in favor of 
giving the money to the private 
hospitals and have instituted the 
study to force this outcome." 

He said he thought Sargent had 
been under "considerable pres- 
sure" from Tufts University and 
Boston University Medical School: 
to force this outcome, "because 
they need the money." 

Soutter said he will act im- 
mediately to get copies of a com- 
prehensive report by medica. 
school architects, the faculty ant 
his staff to a six-man panel namer 
by the governor Friday to stud\ 
the White report and recommenc.

Reason vs Politics 
With the Univ Budget 

"They're Wearing Real Mortarboards This Year" 

The eyes of the University will focus upon Beacon Hill 
this week as the Senate Ways and Means Committee re- 
port out next year's State budget. It is hoped in Whitmore 
that the Senate will restore some of the money which has 
already been cut from the funds for public higher edu- 

In the proposed budget for fiscal year 1970, $123 mil- 
lion was asked for public higher education, which includes 
the three campuses of the University, all the state col- 
leges and technical institutes. This figure was cut to $91 
million by the governor's office, and then to $88 million 
by the House. 

In recent weeks Gorvernor Francis W. Sargent has 
come under fire from UMass President John W. Lederle, 
UMass Boston Chancellor Francis L. Broderick, Senate 
President Maurice Donahue, House Speaker David Bartley, 
and Senator Edward Kennedy, for the large budget cut. 

At the University's commencement exercises May 31, 
Dr. Lederle said "the shortage of operating dollars has 
now brought us to a grave crisis". 

"At stake is the question of whether Massachusetts, 
the home state of Horace Mann, with an annual budget 
approaching one and a half billion dollars, shall continue 
to expend that purse on welfare at a level which puts us 
close to the top nationally in that area, while the share of 
tax dollars for public higher education of our youth rides 
sadly along in 50th place, at rock bottom among all the 

... No state ever spent itself into bankruptcy paying 
for the education of its youth," the UMass President said. 

In an interview with the Daily Collegian following 
the graduation exercises, Gov. Sargent said the Univer- 
sity should not be angry with him, but with th .» legislature. 
He claims that he had reduced the University's budget 
due to the current state financial problems and that the 
"House cut it even further." 

However, UMass Boston Chancellor Francis L. Brode- 
rick said at his school's commencement exercises Thurs- 
day that the governor inflicted the heaviest budget cut - - 
and then blamed the Legislature. 

Gov. Sargent during his formal greetings of the Com- 
monwealth at the Amherst commencement said he'd like 
to "correct the record" in that "I've been accused of merci- 
lessly cutting the UMass budget." 

"What in fact I did, gives this state's fiscal crisis, was 
reduce the initial budget requests that I inherited when I 
became governor in January of this year." 

He said the higher education budget is "as high as 
I can responsibly permit it to be with the other needs 
of the state in mind." 

Sen. Kennedy appeared to take the side of the Univer- 
sity administration in the current budget hassle. He 
said at graduation, ". . . the University of Massachusetts 
has been one of the outstanding successful enterprises of 
our Commonwealth. 

"This University bears the burden of public higher 
education in Massachusetts. Your expansion has been rapid, 
but not as rapid as the need. Ten years from now, unless 
we make an extraordinary effort, there will be over 100,000 
qualified people of college age here in Massachusetts who 
will not be able to go to College. 

The action in the Senate this week will have an im- 
portant effect upon the future of this University. We 
can only hope that the forces of reason will win out over 
the forces of politics, and the funds cut from the budget 
for public higher education will be restored.

Films, Speakers, Research, Camp 
Highlight King Council Program 

« » 

The Martin Luther King Jr. 
Social Action Council has plans 
for a number of projects this 
summer, and is recruiting people 
interested in helping other people. 

The King Council is a group of 
students, faculty, and adminis- 
trators with a membership of 500 
during the regular academic year. 
Dedicated to non-violent ap- 
proaches to change, much of its 
time is spent on educational pro- 
grams such as films, speeches, 
discussion hours and similar func- 
tions. It also gets involved in some 
action programs as well. It has 
moved in the past few months to 
reduce inequalities in minority 
group employment on campus con- 
struction sites. 

An open meeting will be held 
Tuesday, June 17, at 7 p.m. in 
321 Hampshire House to discuss 
the general role of the King Coun- 
cil and provide more specific in- 
formation, about the individual 
programs planned. 

Some programs for the summer 
include the following: 


A weekly series of films for the 
coming academic year is planned. 
People who have experience sch- 
eduling film programs or who have 
a good knowledge of films deal- 
ing with questions of race, war, 
poverty, colonialism, militarism, 
or related topics are urged to join 
the program. 


A major speaking program each 
month is scheduled. Instead of hav- 
ing one speaker, two people would 
discuss different aspects of the 
same issue. 


Researching and laying ground- 
work for a proposed program 
aimed at the Puerto Rican com- 
munity in Northampton, tentative 
plans call for a combination of 

tutoring, varied counseling serv- 
ices, and community organizing. 
People willing to distribute ques- 
tionaires and talk with people in 
the community are needed. Some 
knowledge of Spanish is desira- 
ble, but not necessary. 
All summer long, members of 
next year's freshman class will 
be coming to campus for a three 
day orientation. To reach them 
with questions and information 
about the purpose of education, the 
war, poverty, race, campus and 
urban disorders, we need people 
to man literature tables. 
During the summer of 1970, 
the Council hopes to begin an ex- 
perimental summer camp, with 
75% of the campers coming from 
the core city, 25% from suburban 
areas, or rural areas. Ideas are 
needed for programs, ways of ob- 

taining inexpensive equipment, 
materials, food and counselors. 



The Council hopes to research 
campus priorities on the direction 
of education. It has been alleged 
that the major emphasis is placed 
on graduate education and that the 
undergraduates suffer as a result. 



MLK has been working for over 
a year to end inequality in min- 
ority employment on campus con- 
struction projects. Several major 
breakthroughs with Daniel O' Con- 
nell construction Co. have been 
made. People with a knowledge 
of problems regarding employment 
of blacks and Puerto Ricans, and 
who have the ability to discuss 
these things calmly, quietly, and 
rationally with people who may be 
very openly racist are needed. 

The Martin Luther King Jr. Social Action Council will pre- 
sent a non-credit discussion group on Racism in America. 
Organized by Executive Secretary Gil Salk, the group will 
meet from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. each Wednesday afternoon begin- 
ning June 18. There will be a total of five meetings. 

According to Salk, each participant will read assigned books 
and augment these readings with related articles in the li- 
brary. The independent readings will be unassigned. 

"Information gained from independent reading," Salk said, 
"should be brought out during discussion so that it becomes 
partof the entire group's total information." 

Though not required, a paper will be requested for each 
individual at the end of the term. 

People interested in taking part in the discussion should 
contact the King Council office in 207 Hampshire House, or 
call 545-0648 or 545-0649, no later than noon Tuesday, June 
17. Enrollment is limited to 15 people.

Special to the Summer Statesman 
OMAHA, Neb. - Big John Kit- 
chen, UMass' ace right-hander, 
fired a brillant three-hit shut out 
Saturday night to lead the under- 
dog Redman baseball team to an 
upset 2-0 win over Southern Ill- 
inois in opening round action of 
the College World Series. 

The Redman, in their first NCAA 
championship play since 1954, 
came into the game ranked ninth 
behind the first place Salukis. 
They will face New York Univer- 
sity in second round play tonight 
at 9 p.m. (EDT) at Rosenbaltt 
stadium. Southern Illinois was 
the runner-up team from last 
year's tournev 
But Kitc- 
hen proved to 
be too much for 
the Salukis in 
notching his 
eighth straight 
win. He had a 
no-hitter thro- 
ugh six and a 
third inning, 
facing just 23 
batters, one 

over the limit. Kitchen struck out 11 
batters, didn't walk a man and 
allowed only one Southern Illinois 
runner to reach second base. The 
junior threw only 100 pitches in 

going the distance 

second-baseman Tom Semino 
took care of the offense as he 
drove in both runs with a fourth 
inning double and an eighth inning 
single. Bob Hanson, a slugging 
right-fielder, scored bott of the 
UMass runs. 

Kitchen and Saluki left-hander 
Jerry Paetzhold were locked in a 
no -hit duel through three and a 
third innings. However, in the 

bottom of tiie fourth, Hanson led off 
with a single and catcher Tony 
Chinappi followed with another sin- 

Then "Semino, who is hitting 
.306, ripped a 2-2 fast ball into 
right center to drive in Hanson with 
the first run of the game. Paetz- 
hold then settled down and got out 
of the inning without any more 

Kitchen's no-hit bid was shat- 
tered in the seventh when Southern 
Ulinois' Bill Stein, their leading 
hitter, cracked an opposite field 
single. Stein and second baseman 
Terry Brimfield each got another 
hit to count for the three Saluki 

Violets bring a 20-6 record into 
tonight's game. 

UMass will start sophomore 
right-hander Don Anderson, a 7-1 
performer during the regular sea- 
son. He will be opposed by a 6' 6 
right-hander, Tom Collins. 

In other Tourney action, Arizona 
eliminated UCLA 2-1 in 11 innings. 
In triple headed action tonight, 
Souther Illinois will meet Miss., 
Texas, which upset second-ranked 
Arizona, will duel Tulsa while 
UMass and NYU will be the night

But that was all Kitchen allowed 
the heavily favored SIU team. He 
retired 11 in a row in one stretch 
and was in complete control 
throughout , throwing strikes and 
hitting the corner. He went to 
three balls on only three batters 
and struck them all out. 

The Redmen, who saw scoring 
chances go awry in the third and 
fifth, put their second run on the 
board in the eighth. 

UMass got another run in the 
eighth inning when the same trio, 
Hanson, Chinappi and Semino, 
combined for three singles and a 
run. After Mitch Salnick grounded 
out, Chinappi was caught at the 
plate on a muffed squeeze play and 
Steve Stanford struck out. Bob 
Ash was the victim of the second 
run as Paetzhold was lifted in the 
top of the eighth for a pinch hitter. 
UMass Coach Dick Bergquist 
said happilv after the game, "I 
didn't have to get the kids up 
tonight. All we've heard since we 
got here is how Southern Illinois 
is number one, and we had some- 
thing to prove". He added, re- 
garding Kitchen. 'It was the best 
performance of his career." 

Kitchen agreed with his coach 
saying, "It was probably the best 
I have done for a complete game. 
I threw mostly fast balls and 
sliders because my curv«» wasn't 
doing anything. I was a little 
nervous to begin with, but I set- 
tled sown as the game went on."

THURSDAY, JUNE 19, 1969 



President John W. Lederle 

Dr. John W. Lederle, President of the University of Massachu- 
setts since 1960, has submitted his resignation as president, ef- 
fective at the close of the next academic year, 1969-70. 

In a letter Wednesday to Joseph P. Healey, chairman of the 
Board of Trustees, President Lederle said, "I have always felt 
that a president makes his major contribution within his first ten 
years. Although there are some tasks that remain to be done, af- 
ter 10 years it is better that a board of trustees select a new man, 
one who can bring new ideas and suggest different educational 
paths for a university as called for in a day of dynamic social 

change." . . 

The President said that he will retain his UMass position as 
professor of political science and will teach and conduct research 
at the end of his term. 

Crediting an outstanding faculty and a dedicated group of adminis- 
trators for any successes of the University during his years in office, 
the President also said, "One of my great satisfactions and challenges 
as President has been the opportunity to work both in Boston and in Am- 
herst with outstanding and responsible students." 

Expressing thanks to those in state government for their friendship, 
he said, "Although our budget requests have frequently been cut and we 
have not received the kind of financial support which would put us in 
the forefront of public institutions, we have made tremendous progress. 
It is only because the Commonwealth started from such a low base that 
the very real effort of recent years has been obscured. 

"I would be remiss if I did not express my grave concern for the 
thousands of qualified applicants we must turn away each year. Without 
greatly increased financial support for public higher education - com- 
munity colleges, technical institutes, state colleges and the University - 
thousands of Massachusetts youth will find the door to college slammed 
shut in the years just ahead, and our greatest natural resource will 
be lost to us." 

Major achievements under the Lederle administration, the period of 
greatest growth in the University's history, include: 

--Enrollment increase from 6,495 in 1960 to a projected enrollment of 
more than 21,000 at Amherst and Boston next September. 

—An increase in the average faculty salary from $7528 a year to 
$13,500 a year. 

—An increase from 366 faculty at Amherst to 1157 by September, and 
another 233 at Boston. 

—An increase in number of graduates each year from 901 in 1960 to 
2240 this June in Amherst and another 525 in Boston. 

-Growth in the graduate program from 768 to 3500 students. Doctor- 
al programs have grown from 16 in 1960 to 44 this year. 

The Reaction 

(Continued on Page 4) 

UMass Bears the Mark of 

In the State 

a Truly Great Educator 

On the Campus 


While public figures ranging as 
high as U.S. Transportation Sec- 
retary and former governor John 
A. Volpe were praising John W. 
Lederle as a "dynamic leader in 
education", at least one member 
of the University's Board of Trus- 
tees attributed the President's re- 
signation to the yearly legislative 
hassle over the school's budget. 

"Disappointment at the failure of 
the various governors and legis- 
latures, during the past 10 years, 
to grant the University the funds 
necessary to support its ever- 
growing committments has multip- 
lied over his administration," 
Trustee Louis M. Lyons said. 

"And the increased frustration 
of having his budget slashed un- 
mercifully this year, coupled with 
the 5 year fight over the Medical 
School culminating in this year's 
debate," he added, "has openly 
bothered him." 

The Cambridge Trustee conclu- 
ded, "One might assume that if 
President Lederle had gotten more 
cooperation from the state gov- 
ernment in the past, 10 years 
might not now seem such a long 
time to be President." 

Meanwhile, one of the Univer- 

sity's best friends in the Gener- 
al Court, House Speaker David 
Bartley of Holyoke, declared, 
"The Commonwealth profited 
greatly from his (Lederle 's) con- 
stant leadership and devotion to 
public higher education during his 
administration. ' ' The Speaker was 
"shocked at the announcement", 
and said, "We will miss his lea- 
dership in education." 

Worcester Trustee Edmund J. 
Croce explained that the concept 
of public higher education in the 
state is still relatively new, and 
that Lederle's resignation might 
change some thinking on Beacon 

"Perhaps the legislature will 
review its position in the light of 
the President's decision . . .there 
is considerable room for improve- 
ment," he said. 

While only a handful of people 
would speculate why 10 years 
should be such a long time to be 
a university president in Massa- 
chusetts, it seemed as though all 
wh o knew him felt compelled to 
compliment him. 

(Continued on Page 4) 


High praise and a sense of re- 
gret characterized the words and 
feelings of campus administrators 
when contacted last night for their 
reaction to President Lederle's 
announced resignation. 

Provost Oswald Tippo said, 
"He's made a tremendous contri- 
bution during his 10 years, and he 
will certainly go down in history 
as a great president at the Uni- 
versity " 

"He has been during his 10 years 
the real spokesman for all high- 
er education - the state univer- 
sity, state colleges and commun- 
ity colleges," said Dean of Stu- 
dents William F. Field. "His 
broad vision of what higher edu- 
cation has had to do during this 
period," he went on to say, "has 
had a profound impact. He under- 
stood the broad function and made 
others understand." 

Dean Field also salt* during Led- 
erle's time the University "has 
made its greatest growth, not only 
in quantity, but also in quality, 
and that speaks something for 
the man." 

"It's a great loss to me as a 
member of his staff." said Wil- 
liam Venman, assistant dean of 

administration. "He's served 10 
years, the greatest university 
growth has taken place under him, 
and he deserves a rest." 

Arthur C. Gentile, acting dean of 
the Graduate School, learned of 
the president's resignation listen- 
ing to Louis Lyons, a member of 
the Board of Trustees, over WFCR. 

"I'm somewhat surprised." he 
said, "and sorry to hear it.*' He 
went on to say, "He will have ser- 
ved 10 years, and considering the 
difficulty, that's long enough." He 
termed the president's service 
to the University "yeoman" and 
said, "He's served longer than 
anyone and deserves to go on to 
something better." 

Seymour Shapiro, acting dean 
of the College of Arts and Sci- 
ences, said, "The University has 
advanced enormously over the nine 
years he has been president." 

"He has made strides that one 
has seen in only a few state uni- 
versities," Dr. Shapiro said, "and 
his impact will remain with this 
institution for many years to

Swingshift Freshmen Discuss Problems with Administration 

THURSDAY, JUNE 19, 1969 



Swing- shift Freshmen this sum- 
mer have possibly broken a rec- 
ord for the time it takes to find 
out about the red tape involved 
in attending this university. 

A meeting was held Tuesday 
night among swing- shifters and 
their counselors to air the many 
complaints they had about their 
registration and course selections 
this summer. 

Members of the class listed 
their grievances and scheduled a 
meeting at 1:30 Wed. afternoon 
to be followed by a march on 

A frosh handout read, as fol- 

"There are 347 swing- shift 
freshmen, but only 17 courses, 
many of them closed; some sec- 
tions ars filled, others over- 
crowded; swing- shift pre- regis- 
tration was ignored and class per- 
iods have been changed - all caused 
schedule conflicts and lost cred- 
its. For some male freshmen 
this will mean the draft. 

"Puzzled swing- shifters have 
been office -shuffled or totally ig- 
nored, they have been screwed by 
the treasurer, the registrar, hous- 
ing, scheduling, and the summer 
session director who says, 'I'm 
not in charge of this program.' 
Truth is, no one is and no one 

"Now something is being done. 
Late last night a petition was 
started to request the add-drop 
period to be extended so that 
the swing- shift mess can be stra- 
ightened out. 

"Do something about your sec- 
ond rate status!" 

The entire protest before the 
meeting, which was relatively well 
organized for three day old fresh- 
men, was taken very seriously 
by the administration. Several 
school officials appeared at 1:30 
to listen to the grievances and 
spared the freshmen the walk to 

Among the administrators pre- 
sent were Dean Seymour Shapiro, 
Acting Dean of Arts and Sciences; 
Assoc. Provost Jeremiah Allen, 
Mr. Robert Doolan, Assoc. Dean 
Registrars Office; Mr. Henry Skil- 
lings, Schedule Office, and Mr. 
Kajakian of Summer Counselling. 
Also present were members of 
the summer counselling staff. 

The first complaint aired to the 
administrators, was that apparent- 
ly no one knew what administrat- 
or headed the program. Therefore 
they did not know where to direct 

The point was not cleared up 
until Dr. William Venman, As- 
sistant to the Provost and Dir- 
ector of the entire summer school 
program, arrived at the meeting 
from Boston. After several min- 
utes of chaotic discussion, Dr. 
Venman designated himself as the 
person to whom swing- shifters 
were to air their grievances. 

During the discussion several 
more complaints were added to 
the original list. Several per- 
sons stated that they were notable 
to get courses in their majors, 
and the add-drop deadlines should 
be extended. At this point one 
of the administrators stated the add 
deadline was to be next Wed., 
June 25 and the drop deadline 
would be July 23rd. The meeting 
was then marked by periods of 
chaos which saw several students 
criticize the swing- shift program. 
One student called the program, 
"a shame, farce and disgrace to 
the university." Another stated, 
"I'm awfully sick and tired of 
being told how lucky I am to be 
here . . . Why was I given ad- 
vanced course tests, if there are- 
n't any offered this summer?" 

Students began to blame the 
construction on campus for their 
problems and things became chao- 
tic again. 

At this point Dr. Venman stepped 
in and asked. "Why don't you 
learn something of what you are 
talking about before you ask a 
question?" He stated, "Mistakes 
have been made . . and it has 
been a horrible run around."

Acting Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, Seymour Shapiro, discussed curricu- 
lum problems with swingshift freshmen outside Hampshire Commons. 

After further discussion about 
course offerings Dr. Venman sta- 
ted he would make every possible 
effort to offer any regular fresh- 
man course to 5 or more students 
requesting it. 

It was finally decided to call 
another meeting for students who 
had not been able to attend. The 
meeting was scheduled for Wed. 
night, (during this papers print- 
ing) at which some of the admin- 
istrators would again be present. 

Before termination of the meet- 
ing the opinion was expressed that 
it was unfortunate the confrontation 
had to arranged to air the griev- 
ances. It was believed that bet- 
ter planning on the part of the ad- 
ministration might have prevent- 
ed the problems from happening. 

University Counseling Center 
Available to Swingshift Frosh 

A unique attempt is being made to help swing shift Freshmen become 
acquainted with campus academic and social life at UMass. 

For the first time, the University Counseling Center is offering a 
counseling and "drop in" center in the Southwest Residence Hall Area 
for any problems swing- shifters may confront. The Center will be 
staffed by summer graduate students enrolled in a practicum program 
sponsored by the University Counseling Center. The main Counseling 
Center, located in Whitmore Hall, is still open and operating as usual. 

Students interested in speaking privately about any problems are 
urged to contact the three intern counselors. Bill Wilkinson, Ted 
Taranto and Bernie Pleskoff will be available in Hampden Dining Com- 
mons and Kennedy Tower 1st floor for swing- shift Freshmen. Hours 
are 1:00 p.m to 5:30 p.m. 

The three counselors are eagerly awaiting the start of the unique 
service. They sensed a need for personal contact among swing shift- 
ers and are most willing to help. All are familiar with the problems 
encountered by students in swing shift. 

Information and help to any swing shift student may be obtained at the 
"drop-in center" - located in Hampden Commons. 

UMass Plant Disease Expert to Malawi 

A plant disease specialist from 
the University of Massachusetts 
Research Station in EastWareham 
has been called to Africa by the 
government of Malawi to help solve 
crop production problems. 

Dr. Bert M. Zuckerman, pro- 
fessor of plant pathology at East 
Wareham. has been requested by 
the minister of agriculture of Mal- 
awi to evaluate certain crop pro- 
duction problems, specifically the 

destruction of the essential oil 
plant ninde through nematode or 
parasitic worm attack. He will 
also act as a consultant on prob- 
lems of banana and dark- fired 
tobacco production. 

The University of Massachusetts 
U.S. Agency for International De- 
velopment Malawi project, now in 
its sixth year, maintains training 
programs for students and tech- 
nicians at the Amherst campus and 
aids in the development of Mal- 

awi's agricultural extension and 
educational system through a staff 
in Malawi. 

Dr. Zuckerman earned his B.S. 
degree at North Carolina State 
College in 1948 and his Ph.D. 
from the University of Illinois in 
1954. He is the author or co- 
author of over 85 scientific pap- 
ers, and the co-author of a for- 
thcomin g freshman textbook. Dr. 
Zuckerman will arrive in Malawi 
June 28 for a one- month stay. 








Southwest Comes Alive 
With Opening Concert 


The Southwest Mall was alive 
with the sound of music Tuesday 
night as the Paul Winter Contem- 
porary Concert opened the 1969 
summer concert series. 

A capacity crowd was on hand 
as the group performed a variety 
of numbers ranging from classi- 
cal to contemporary. Basically 
jazz in nature, the consort's sel- 
ections reflected the influence of 
African, Israeli, Indian and South 
American music. Classical pieces 
ranged from Bach to Bartok. 

The group consists of classi- 
cal, 12 string and electric guitar 
(all played by one musician;, alto 
sax, cello, alto flute, English horn, 
bass, and a wide assortment of per- 
cussion instruments ranging from 
the conventional drum to a wild 
collection of Brazilian, African, 
and Israeli folk instruments. 


The drummer provided the aud- 
ience with a look at some fancy 
finger- work in an Indian raga which 
Winter noted is a favorite of Pete 
Seeger's. Later in the evening, 
the whole group ended up play- 
ing percussion instruments in a 
rhythmical suit from "Black Or- 
pheus", a Brazilian composition. 

One of the highlights of the con- 
cert was a guitar solo of a Bach 
selection. Unfortunately, much of 
its effect was lost on the audience 
simply because the outdoor setting 
did not provide the intimate at- 
mosphere so necessary to such a 

Though much o f the audience 
was unfamiliar with the style of 
music, everyone was generally 
receptive, enthusiastic and appre- 
ciative of the first outdoor per- 
formance at Southwest. 

The Paul Winter Contemporary Consort were heard by 
hundreds Tuesday night in Southwest.

Israeli Cellist 
To Perform Tues. 

The second major concert att-

Program at UMass will take place 
next Tuesday evening, June 24th. 
Featured on this occasion will be 
the gifted, young Israeli cellist 
Yehuda Hanani and Anahid Alex- 
anian, pianist in a recital in Bow- 
ker Auditorium at 8:00 p.m. and is 
open to the public without charge. 

Mr. Hanini topped many of his 
previous awards this week when 
it was announced that he won first 
prize in the coveted Emma Feld- 
ma n Memorial Competition in 
Philadelphia which, in addition to 
a $1000 prize, includes a recital 
in the Philadelphia Academy of 
Music. The 25 year old Hanani 
was discovered in Israel by vio- 
linist Isaac Stern and cellist Leo- 
nard Rose when these two great 
personalities were touring there in 
1964. Since then Mr. Hanani has 
been given the opportunity for pri- 
vate study in this country and is 
quickly becoming one of the more 
exciting young musicians before 
the public today. 



Friday, Junfe 19 at 7:30 p.m. 

(following services there will be a short discussion of 
possible Summer programs. J.Q.A. is the SE tower cir- 
cled by a service road on three sides) 

Summer Govt. Organizes; 
Nomination Papers Due 

Student government for the Summer is now being formed, according 
to John Dubois, member of the Student Senate and administrative in- 
tern in the Office of the Dean of Students. 

House meetings in each of the seven Southwest residence halls are 
being held to have each house adopt a constitution and open house policy. 
Each residence hall including the graduate house, Prince, has $150 in 
student tax funds, which it cannot spend until it has adopted a constitu- 
tion and has a functioning government. 

Dubois is also making arrangements for the other branches of 
government, the judiciaries and the Summer Senate, the latter has a 
budget of over $2,000. 

Nomination papers for the Senate, signed by 25 residents of the 
candidate's constituency must be filed by Monday, June 23rd with the 
Head of Residence, or for commuters at the Student Government desk 
in Southwest Commons #9. Elections will take place on Thursday, 
June 26th, from 6 to 9 p.m. in the residence halls, and for commuters 
all day in the Student Union lobby. 

Dubois hopes that the Senate will deal with issues confronting the 
summer student body, as well as serving a program function. High on 
the agenda will be action o n dormitory autonomy, especially on the 
question of open house, perhaps including support of the regular Senate's 
proposal for complete dormitory autonomy. 

Selections for the three Summer Judiciaries will be by a committee 
appointed by the Summer Senate, and will take place at 7:30 Monday, 
June 30, in S.W. Commons #9. Applicants should familiarize them- 
selves beforehand with the Code of Conduct and Judiciary Act, found 
in the Student Handbook, according to Dubois.

An Editorial 

When the Time is Right 
It Takes a Man to Act 

It really wasn't shocking news. 

We predicted the resignation of UMass President John Lederle 
over two months ago, but didn't expect the announcement until 
next spring. 

John Lederle and his team have transformed a 1960 cow col- 
lege of 6500 students into one of the nation's best and fastest 
growing state universities with a projected enrollment of more 
than 21,000 next September. For this we will be ever grateful to 

In his letter of resignation, Lederle states tharwhen he came 
here in 1960, he set for himself ten years as the outside limit of 
his tenure as president. "I have always felt that a president 
makes his major contribution within his first ten years. Although 
there are some tasks that remain to be done, after ten years it is 
better that a board of trustees select a new man, one who can 
bring new ideas and suggest different educational paths for a uni- 
versity as called for in a day of dynamic social change," he said. 

Being president of any university or college today is a very de- 
manding job. Being president of the state university of Massa- 
chusetts has probably been for John Lederle a little bit more so. 

Although the 57 year old president cites his long tenure as 
the main reason for leaving, the current problems between Beacon 
Hill and Whitmore hastened Lederle' s resignation. The Univer- 
sity has experienced four bad budget years under Republican gov- 
ernors and weak Democratic legislative leadership. Governor 
Sargent, with an eye towards the electorate and the so called 
"taxpayers revolt", cut the request for public higher education 
by over $30 million. The UMass Boston budget alone was slashed 
20% by the Governor. The Worcester Medical School, which John 
Lederle has worked so hard to bring about, is fighting for its 
life because of pressure put on Gov. Sargent by the Harvard, Bos- 
ton University and Tufts medical schools. 

However, the fault does not completely rest on Beacon Hill. 
Several legislative leaders, who are considered to be friends of 
the University, have said the University administration has not 
done its job in selling the University to the legislature and to the 
public. Many in the Boston area still consider us to be the Uni- 
versity of Western Mass. Too often the administration has waited 
until it had its back against the wall to take the offensive. 

The Lederle team has been breaking up over the past year. 
The resignations of Edward Moore, Dean of the Graduate School; 
Mark Noffsinger, Assoc. Dean of Students; Leo Redfern, Dean of 
Administration; Robert Hopkins, Dean of Men; I. Moyer Huns- 
berger, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences and Francis 
Ryan, Chancellor of UMass Boston, have affected John Lederle. 
The final blow was the April 24th announcement that Provost Os- 
wald Ti rpo, John Lederle's right arm man and closest University 
friend, intended to resign. 

Since these announced resignations and the resiltant game of 
administrative musical chairs, near confusion has reigned at times 
in certain high Whitmore posts. One gathered the impression that 
at times one office hasn't known what the next one is doing. The 
most recent example is the apparent chaos in the current swing- 
shift program where, until yesterday, no one really knew what ad- 
ministrator headed the program. There are now 347 swingshift 
freshmen enrolled when only last week 300 were expected. 

Again we thank John Lederle for what he has given us. At all 
times he has treated us and thought of us as adults. On innum- 
erable ocassions he has stated that the University should not 
play the role of babysitter, that this is the place where students 
learn to confront the real world. 

But ten years is a long time for any college president. It's a 
killing job. The time has come for new ideas and new vitality in 
the upper echelons of Whitmore. It takes a man of John Lederle's 
stature to realize this and to act accordingly.

Lederle to Retire at End af Next Year, State, Campus Express Praise 

MEETING IN WHITMORE A YEAR AGO, then Speaker of the House Robert Quinn and 
House Ways and Means Chairman Anthony Scibelli discuss the University's financial 
needs with President Lederle. 

In the State 

"The University has made a 
dramatic climb during his years as 
President," Louis Lyons said, 
"and he will be sorely missed as 
the leader of public higher educat- 
ion in this state." 

John A. Volpe, who was not 
always thought as the University's 
best friend while governor, com- 
plimented the President last night. 
"John Lederle has made a great 
contribution to the youth of the 
Commonwealth . . . and under 
his leadership the University has 

grown to be one of the best State 
Universities in the country. I 
salute him for his service to my 
home state," the Transportation 
Secretary told the Statesman last 

Trustee Robert Gordon was op- 
enly distraught over the Presi- 
dent's resignation. "John Led- 
erly has done a magnificant job of 
building and extending a quality 
educational system ... and a 
great tribute is owed him for the 
remarkable way in which he has 

served thi s state for the past ten 

The feeling of the Board of 
Trustees as a whole was summed 
up by Dennis M. Crowley of Bos- 
ton, who said of Lederle, "I ter- 
ribly regret that he is leaving us, 
he is truly a great educator. In 
the 10 years of his administration, 
a great University has been built, 
and it is obvious that he has made 
a major contribution toward the 
well being of the State."

—During his tenure, 70 buildings have been built on the Amherst 
campus, 28 of them by the UMass Building Authority at no cost to the 
taxpayer totalling $54,029,000, and 42 academic buildings and additions 
at a cost of $84,271,000. At the present time another eight buildings, 
including a campus center, a 28-story library, and a 17-story graduate 
research center are under construction. 

—Passage of the fiscal autonomy bill in 1962 which allows trustees 
to set appropriate salary ranges for professional staff within state 
salary schedules, to transfer funds within state subsidiary accounts, 
to follow modern purchasing procedures, to establish tenure rules and 
establish trust funds for gifts and self-supporting programs. The es- 
tablishment of fiscal autonomy for the University is considered by 
many to be the most important step taken in the quality growth of that 

--Establishment of a campus in Boston in 1964. A year later the 
first class of 1200 entered, and this past June the first class of 525 
graduated. The establishment of UMass- Boston is one of the amazing 
feats in higher educational history - five years from establishment to 
the graduation of the first class, when it usually takes nine or ten years. 
Plans are under way to build the first phase of the permanent campus 
at Columbia Point. 

—Establishment of the medical school in Worcester in 1962. Plans 
are ready to build the medical school and are nearly complete on the 
hospital. Funds totalling $35 million have been granted by the federal 
government for the two facilities, and the first class is expected to 
enter in 1970. 

The 15th president of UMass, Dr. Lederle is a native of Royal Oak, 
Michigan. He received his A.B., A.M., LL.B. and Ph. D degrees from 
the University of Michigan. Before returning to his alma mater as a 
political scientist, he taught at Brown University and served as as- 
sistant dean of the college. At Michigan he rose to the rank of pro- 
fessor and became director of the Institute of Public Administration. 

In 1953-54 he served as Controller of the State of Michigan and Head 
of the Michigan Department of Administration. Admitted to practice 
before the U.S. Supreme Court in 1947, he was the organizer and first 
director of the Institute of Public Administration of the University of 
the Philippines. 

Dr. Lederle has received honorary degrees from Amherst College, 
Holy Cross, Hokkaido University in Japan, Northeastern University and 
Boston University. 

President Lederle is married to the former Angie Pamela King. 
The couple has two children.

Shapiro went on to say, "Ac- 
cording to his statement, which I 
heard on the radio, he planned to 
stay no longer than 10 years, feel- 
ing he would make hi s impact on 
the University in that time. The 
University has improved, and he 
now sees that whatever he can give 
it has already been built in." 

Student Senate Bruce Balboni 
said, the resignation "was a com- 
plete surprise. I had no idea he 
was resigning." He went on to 
say he thought the budget cuts 
"had something to do with it." 

He also said he felt the Provost's 
resignation was involved. "He 
and Provost Tippo worked as a 
team," Balboni said. 


Balboni went on to say the Pres- 
ident had been doing a 
job" and he wished he would " 
consider his resignation, although I 
don't suppose he can." He add- 
ed he felt the president was con- 
cerned with the student's welfare 
and "I'm thankful he will be there 
while I'm president of the Stu- 
dent Senate." 

Vice President of the Senate 
Cindi Olken said she was "up- 
set to hear President Lederle had 
resigned" and added it came "as 
a complete surprise." 

Lowell H. Fitch, editor-in- 
chief of the Index said, 'The man 
was always an enigma to me, 
and perhaps to many others, but 
his accomplishments are no mys- 
tery. His successor will follow 
a pretty tough act."

legislative support for public higher education. He is pictured here with commencement guests Walter Crc 
kite, Francis Sargent, and Edward Kennedy. (MDC photo by Peter Pa'scarelli) 


When I came to the University of Massachu- 
setts in 1960 I set for myself ten years as the out- 
side limit of my tenure in presidential office. I 
have always felt that a president makes his major 
contribution within his first ten years. Although 
there are some tasks that remain to be done, al- 
ter ten years it is better that a board of trustees 
select a new man, one who can bring new ideas 
and suggest different educational paths for a uni- 
versity as called for in a day of dynamic social 

For some time past I have been the senior state 
university president in New England. I have al- 
ready held office longer than the national norm. 
If I may indulge in some humor currently pre- 
valent among my presidential colleagues: "It is 
a good idea to quit before one falls farther be- 

I therefore write to apprise you, and through you 
the Board of Trustees, of my resignation as Pres- 
ident to become effective at the end of the academ- 
ic year 1969-70. I give you this notice now so 
that you may have ample time in which to search 
for my successor. Pending his arrival I shall, 
of course, devote my full attention and energy to 
the advancement of the University system in Am- 
herst, Boston and Worcester. 

My decision is based on my firm belief in what 

is good for the University. I resign with the highest 
regard for the members of the Board of Trustees 
and with deep appreciation for the privilege they 
have afforded me to lead the University during 
tt is period of rapid growth not only in size but 
in quality. It is hard to realize that enrollment 
has increased from slightly more than six thousand 
students in 1960 to a planned twenty-one thousand 
next fall. 

As I have said many times, "The University is 
people 1" In the popular mind the President gets 
the credit, but the truth is that any success we 
have achieved is due to the backing of an out- 
standing faculty and of a dedicated group of admin- 
istrators who have worked ably as my adminis- 
trative team. If there is any discredit, as Presi- 
dent I am glad to assume that alone. 

One of my great satisfactions and challenges as 
President has been the opportunity to work both in 
Boston and in Amherst with outstanding and res- 
ponsible students. The University has pioneered 
in the involvement of students in the development 
of policy at all levels clear up to the Board of 
Trustees. We have established and will continue 
to develop a tripartite academic community in which 
students, faculty and administration work coopera- 
tively toward the common goal of academic ex-

"Critical Issues in Labor," a 466-page book of text and readings by 
management and industrial relations professor Max S. Wortman, Jr., 
of the University of Massachusetts, has been published by the Mac-

The book is designed as a textbook for such courses as labor econ- 
omics, industrial relations and coUectlve bargaining. It integrates the 
new approaches toward labor programs into abroad conceptual fram- 
work and deals with virtually every major aspect of industrial relations, 
according to the publisher. 

In each section of the book, the new approaches to both new and old 
problems In industrial relations are examined through an analysis of 
new theoretical systems. 

Prof. Wortman came to UMass in 1968 from the University of Iowa. He

College Press Service 

clouds are rising between higher 
education and the federal govern- 
ment, the chairman of the House 
Select Subcommittee on Education 
told a national conference of col- 
lege administrators June 13. 

Rep . John Brademas (D/Ind) 
told 100 administrators participa- 
ting in the annual Executive In- 
stitute in College and University 
Administration that the first prob- 
lem is President Nixon's attitude 
toward higher education. "In cit- 
ing the nation's 10 most pressing 
domestic needs, Nixon not once 
mentioned higher education," Bra- 
demas said. 

"The immediate future outlook 
is pessimistic," be said, "but ov- 
er the long haul the federal in- 
vestment in higher education must 
rise." Brademas cited statis- 
tics which show that enrollment in 
university and college degree pro- 
grams has risen from 2.6 million 
to 6.5 million in the last twelve 
years and will increase to 10 mil- 
lion by 1975. In addition to in- 
creasing enrollment, he listed re- 
search, public service, and sharp 
increases in graduate and pro- 
fessional programs as requiring 
increased financial aid. 

A second major problem block- 
ing increased federal aid is the 
Congress. Brademas calls the 
current Congressional attempts at 
running the campuses "one of 
the most astonishing efforts to 
impose federal control on the field 
of higher education in American 

The particular bill Brademas 
refers to (HR11941) would require 
universities to file codes of cam- 
pus conduct before being eligible 
for any federal financial assistance 
and would tighten the government's 
power to revoke aid at any campus 
where student unrest has taken 
place. "Evidence is mounting on 
every side that this is a most 
unwise way to educate and a most 


by Brant parker and Johnny hart 

unwise proposal. We (the con- 
gress) are proving we're just as 
insensitive and outrageous as the 
SDS kids say we are," he said. 

Brademas said he does not sym- 
pathise with Students for a Dem- 
ocratic Society members because 
their general attitude is one of 
destruction rather than construc- 
tion and because the reaction they 
generate is one of the prime causes 
for the anti- college backlash in 
the government. But he cautioned 
against making generalizations on 
the sources of student unrest. 
"It's unwise to assert that such 
groups as SDS are the only cause... 
Criticism of the ways the colleges 
are run and the entire range of 
problems in the wider spectrum of 
American life are causes of cam- 
pus unrest." 

Despite the current conflict be- 
tween campuses and legislators. 
Brademas expects the government 
eventually will have to increase 
its support of higher education. 
In 1965 the Congress gave $6.5 
billion to higher education. By 
1975 there will be a demand for 
$34 billion. 

The crucial problem then will 
be how much control over the uni- 
versities the government will take 
for its increased financial role. 
"If the federal government is to 
become the largest financial sup- 
porter of education, we in govern- 
ment must find out how most ef- 
fectively to make decisions con- 
cerning the universities," Brad- 
emas said.

the NCAA championship playoffs. 

The Sun Devils, ranked No. 2 
in the country, now have a 53-11 
record, while ninth-ranked UMass 
finished 22-9. 

UMass, gained a lead in the 
fourth inning, when, with one out, 
Bob Hansen of East Boston lined 
"a fastball right down the pike" 
well over the 370 -foot mark in 
right center for his seventh home 
run of the season. 

The blast came off Arizona 
State starter, freshman Craig 

However, the Sun Devils got all 
they needed in the bottom of the 
fifth. A rizona State scored four 
runs, all with two out, off UMass 
starter Lou Colabello of Milton. 
The attack included a single, a 
double and knocked Colabello from 
the box and brought on senior

Norm Elliott of Waltham, who fin-

The damage was done, though. 
The relief pitching of Elliott and 
sophomore Jack Bernardo of Lud- 
low blanked Arizona State the rest 
of the game. 

The Redmen got one run closer 
in the seventh. Catcher Tony 
Chinappi of Milford, led off with a 
walk. After two outs, right-field- 
er Paul Sulzicki singled, and third 
baseman Tim Berringer of Fram- 
ingham singled Chinappi home. 

New York University rode an 
early explosion to a 9-2 victory 
over Massachusetts before 8,260 
fans Monday night and joined Tulsa 
as the only unbeaten teams in the 
23rd NCAA College World Series. 

Tulsa stood off a late rally by 
Texas and used four runs batted 
in by Roger Whitaker to notch a 
4-2 victory over the Longhorns 
in the other winners' bracket game. 

Mississippi eliminated Southern 
Illinois, 8-1, in the afternoon game 
as Whitey Adams drove in four 
runs with two singles and a double. 

NYU spotted Massachusetts a 
1-0 lead, then roared past the Red- 
men with a hard-hitting attack a- 
gainst starter Don Anderson. The 
Violets scored four times in the 
third inning with a two -run single 
by Jeff Kalish, the big blow. 

Joe Szewczyk doubled home two 
more runs in the three -run sev- 
enth for NYU. 

That was enough for Tom Col- 
lins, who yielded seven hits - in- 
cluding two doubles and two tri- 
ples - in the first five innings 
but settled down to go the dis- 

Tulsa got sparkling pitching 
from Steve Rogers and Cliff But- 
cher to whip Texas. 

Whitaker, a junior outfielder, 
belted the third home run of the 
tournament, 350 feet to left in 
the second inning, to stake Tulsa 
to a 3-0 lead. It came after Phil 
Honeycutt had singled and Steve 
Rogers walked. 

Whitaker also singled home a run 
in the ninth. 

Rogers held Texas hitless for 
7-2/3 innings before Jack Miller 
singled to left in the eighth. Ro- 
gers then got into trouble in the 
ninth and had to be rescued by 

Coach Dick Bergquist said, "I'm 
really proud of how our guys 
played. When we came out here, 
we weren't expected to win any- 
thing, but we knocked off the num- 
ber one team and played the num- 
ber two team evenly." 

He went on to say, "The dif- 
ference was depth. We have the 
talent, but some teams seem to 
have more of it." Looking ahead 
to next year, he said, "With the 
returning nucleus of players and 
the fine crop of freshmen, I think 
we'll be back next year." 

"The guys want to come back," 
he said. "They have a taste of

Broad Comments 

By JAN CURLEY Sports Editor 

It was nice while it lasted. Omaha, that is. The baseball team, 
hailed as the redeeming heroes of the year, went to Omaha last Thurs- 
day and got off to a brilliant ( and the adjective lacks something) 
start by defeating first ranked Southern Illinois in the first round by 
a 2-0 shutout. John Kitchen almost had a no -hitter. 

Dizzy with the sweet taste of victory, the team readied themselves 
for the second round against the New York University contingent. NYU 
has been rated a dark horse and the folks back home were wondering 
if their boys would win the tournament. The wonder had a generous 
dose of hope. It would be nice, to say the least, Great and unbelievable 
would be more like it. 

But NYU routed the Redmen. It was nothing like the disasters of the 
Red Sox over the weekend, but coming on the heels of the spectacular 
upset of the Salukis, the loss was comparable. NYU unleashed a 12-hit 
attack to bury UMass, 9-2. NYU is making its third tourney bid, but 
they have never finished higher than fourth. 

For the Redmen, it was the first appearance in the College World 
Series since the early 50s. And now its all over. Nothing to look forward 
to now but the return trip home. 

NYU then faced Tulsa, another dark horse, in the third round. By then, 
number one Southern Ulinois had been eliminated by its second loss in 
the tourney. UMass was pitted against the Mississippi Sun Devils. They 
were the team which provided the shocker Monday night by defeating the 
aforementioned, highly-touted Salukis by an 8-1 score. 

In the third round, it was UMass took on Arizona State and Mississippi 
took to the diamond against Texas. 

The Monday night loss by the Redmen was played before a crowd of 
8260 at Rosenblatt Stadium. It is a sad story, but even after the last 
out, hope still shown, although fainter than before, for the Redmen. 
Down, but not out, might be the appropriate phrase. 

New York spotted the Redmen to an early 1-0 lead, then reared past 
them with a hard-hitting attack against starter Don Anderson. The 
Violets (shrinking violets would have been more help) scored four times 
in the third inning with a two-run single by Jeff Kalish. And that was 
the ballgame, to coin a phrase. The Redmen just did not bounce back. 

But the runs were a comfortable cushion for Violet pitcher Tom 
Collins who gave up seven hits including two doubles and two triples 
to the Redmen in the first five innings. Unfortunately, he then settled 
down for the last half. 

Tulsa squeezed past NYU 2-0 ( a familiar score) to become the only 
undefeated team. The loss was the first for the Violets after two 

Not to put off the UMass news any longer, for the Redmen lost to Ari- 
zona 4-2. Arizona scored four times in the fifth with the aid of three 
triples. Texas clobbered Mississippi 14-1 ( in case ther are any Texas 
or Mississippi fans around). 

The worst part about the fifth inning is that the Redmen almost had 
Arizona. But that's the story of a lot of games. 

The only bright news of the day for the Redmen was Bob Hansen who 
belted a homer in the fourth. 

By the way, Bob Hansen made the second team all- America in the out- 
field and shortstop Joey DiSarcina made the third team. DiSarcina 
has been scouted by the San Diego club and after the tourney, he might 
very well go pro. 

So, today they come home. It will be a long plane trip and one which 
we hope will not be made longer by any attempted high jack. Although 
when we saw a certain photographer preparing to leave for the tourney, 
one of the lens he had cased resembled a gun. 

It will be good to have the team home, for even though they didn't 
win, they did a creditable job. One they should be proud of and one of 
which we are proud.

Committee Studies 
University Structure; 
To Aid New President 


A committee of students, faculty and administrators has been or- 
ganized to study the entire structure of the University, so that John W. 
Lederle's successor will have a complete knowledge of the problems 
which will face the University in the 70 's, and the tools with which to 
solve them. 

A second committee will be named by the Board of Trustees in the 
fall to choose the new President. This committee, according to Board 
Chairman Joseph P. Healy, will then be able to select the new Presi- 
dent with a clear knowledge of the talents he will need in directing the 
University in the 70's. 

In a statement for the Board, Healy expressed his belief that Leder- 
le's resignation was not caused by the University's present budgetary 
problems. Instead, he said, the President's "long held personal con- 
viction that a ten year span represents the practical outer-limits of 
effective academic leadership" was the reason behind the resignation. 

He did add, however, that "there are no illusions about the diffic- 
ulties involved in view of the rising number of vacancies in the ranks of 
coUege presidents. Unless something is done to lessen the pressures 
and frustrations of top administrators in American Universities, a 
period much less than ten years may be the realistic term for any suc- 
cessor to Dr. Lederle." 

The study committee, the Board hopes, will be able to discover the 
causes of the problems which plague university presidents and recom- 
ment possible solutions. 

In the statement, the Board saluted Lederle for the contributions he 
made to the University during his 10 year administration, stating, 
"Today, the University of Massachusetts stands ready to take its 
place among the great state Universities in the nation." 

Lederle announced his resignation, effective at the end of the next 
academic year, in a surprise move last Wednesday. He will remain at 
UMass as a Professor of Goverment at the end of his term. 

WMUA Asks Trustees 
For Big Power Increase 


f HkiBuarljuflrttfl 

Despite money allotted it by 
the Student Senate, WMUA's pow- 
er increase is still an uncer- 
tainty at the present time. If 
the UMass Board of Trustees do 
not approve it, the student radio 
station's plans to convert to a 
1000 watt stereo operation will 
be squelched. 

Most likely, the fate of the 
power increase will be decided at 
the June 30th meeting of the Trus- 
tees. The request has already 
gone before the Student Life sub- 
committee, chaired by Louis Ly- 
ons who is affiliated with another 
educational FM station, WGBH in 
Boston. This subcommittee will 
make its report at the June 30th 

If the Trustees give their ap- 
proval, the request will then go to 
the Federal Communications Com- 
mission which has the final say. 
According to WMUA General Man- 
ager Dick Stadlen, it is almost 
imperative that the Trustees pass 
the request as soon as possible, 
since there are indications that 
the F.C.C. is considering a freeze 
on all actions involving FM radio 
stations by the fall. This freeze 
would be temporary, but by the 
time it would be lifted, Stadlen 
fears that it would be too late 
to go to 1000 watts. WMUA, 
which is off the air for the sum- 
mer, currently operates at 10 

The original motivating force 
behind the station's request for 
the power increase was twofold; 
so WMUA's signal would reach all 
of the commuters and cover the 
campus effectively, which it does 
not do at 10 watts, and to give 
the station the capability to broad- 
cast in stereo, which it cannot 
do at 10 watts. The Student Sen- 
ate, in passing the 1969-70 Bud- 
get Act, allotted WMUA money for 
both the power increase and the 
stereo capability. 

Before sending the request off 
to the F.C.C. in Washington, WMUA 
first had to seek the approval of 
the licensee, the Board of Trust- 
ees. The first obstacle came when 
the University Broadcasting Coun- 
cil, acting in an advisory capac- 
ity to President Lederle and the 
Board, recommended that WMUA 
merely change its antenna site 
from the top of the Engineering 
Building to a higher location, Or- 
chard Hill, and remain at 10 watts. 

WMUA is planning to change the 
antenna location to Emily Dickin- 
son Hall in the Orchard, but WM- 
UA's engineers as well as the 
station's Washington -based con- 
sulting engineerin g firm agree 
that in order to give the most ef- 
fective coverage to the students 
that pay for WMUA, the power in- 
crease must be effected too. 

Should the request be turned 
down by the Trustees, Stadlen 
says that a corporation could be 
formed to hold the license instead 
of the Trustees. Under these 
circumstances, the Board would 
probably allow the power increase. 
But Stadlen indicates that this 
would take too long. 

"We're running short on time," 
he says. With the possibility of 
an F.C.C. freeze on such actions, 
it is almost imperative that the 
application go to the F.C.C. dur- 
ing the summer. Thus, it is up 
to the Board of Trustees to act. 
In the meantime. Stadlen and 
WMUA Chief Engineer Jay Bal- 
lard have been working feverishly 
to clear the way. 

If the Trustees do not approve 
the power increase, it is possi- 
ble that WMUA may always re- 
main 10 watts. Stadlen feels that 
WMUA is responsible enough to 
operate at a higher power, and that 
the Board of Trustees' fear of be- 
ing responsible for a signal that 
goes beyond the boundaries of the 
campus is unfounded.

Budget Battle Nears Climax 
Senate Pres. Donahue Helps UM 


The jreat budget battle between the University and Beacon Hill is in the sixth round of a scheduled ten 
rounder, with Beacon Hill leading on points. However, odds are the last four rounds will decide how 
much money the University will receive for fiscal 1970. 

After submitting an original 
request of $47,038,275 to Beacon 
Hill the University has seen the 
budget slashed twice and then coun- 
ter once. 

Governor Sargent, making the 
first cut in the UMass-Amherst 
bid for higher education funds, 
snipped a hearty $8,296,725 off the 
budget several months ago, be- 
fore submitting it to the House 
Ways and Means Committee. The 
House then trimmed the budget by 
another $1,613,700 and then the Sen- 

ate added $1,650,000 to counter, 
bring the budget situation up to 

According to David A. Gugin, 
Assistant Dean of Administration, 
the budget is presently in a joint 
conference committee of both the 
House and Senate. This commit- 
tee is attempting to resolve the 
differences between the House cuts 
and the Senate additions before 
submitting the bil 1 to the Gover-

As announced in last week's paper, the drop-in center was organized 
primarily to assist swing- shift freshmen with any schedule or personal

The center will attempt to provide a coffeehouse atmosphere and 
will be open Monday-Saturday from 1:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. Mr. Ples- 
koff also stated that if there is a demand, the center will open evenings. 

Staffing the center will be Bill Wilkinson, Ted Taranto, and Bernie 
Pleskoff All are looking forward to meeting individually with swing- 
shifters,' and discussing with them anything they wish. 

WASHINGTON - Health, Educa- 
tion and Welfare Secretary Rob- 
ert H. Finch said Tues. the Fed- 
eral government is not likely to 
help defray an estimated $40 mil- 
lion escalation in the cost of the 
University of Massachusetts Med- 
ical School. 

In a letter to Cong. Silvio O. 
Conte (R-Mass.), Finch said the 
government "has been reluctant to 
adopt or look with favor on sup- 
plemental grant awards solely on 
the basis of higher construction 

The school scheduled to be con- 
structed in Worcester is now ex- 
pected to cost $124 million. At 
the time Federal funds were ap- 
plied for in early 1968, the total 
cost had been estimated at $84 

Finch said the University could 
apply for supplemental Federal 
grants after bids are made on the 

school's construction, providing 
that the amount of the low bid ex- 
ceeds the coat estimate by "more 
than 10 percent." 

But rather than encourage hopes 
for additional grants, Finch made 
a point of emphasizing that the 
Federal government has commit- 
ted only $13,832,588 to the pro- 
ject thus far - not $35 million as 
stated in a letter he recently re- 
ceived from the state's congres- 
sional delegation. 

He noted that the National Ad- 
visory Council on Education for 
Health Professions has approved 
an additional $16,547,917 but the 
department has not actually made 
the grant. 

A meeting scheduled between 
Soutter and the delegation Tues- 
was postponed indefinitely in re- 
spect to the late Rep. William R. 
Bates, (R-Mass.). 

increase of 11.2% over last year's 
allowance, several programs im- 
portant to the development of the 
University will be cancelled if the 
cuts remain the same. 

Among the programs that would 
be cancelled the Dean mentioned 
six that he called "more glam- 

1) $431,000 for education in 
computer science through the 
Computer Research Center 

2) $800,000 for "vitaUy need- 
ed" library books on the Am- 
herst Campus. 

3) $100,000 needed for the 
education of disadvantaged stu- 

4) A grave shortage in re- 
search and instructional equip- 

5) No development of an edu- 
cational T.V. project. 

6) $4,200,000 for salaries in 
the 01, 02, and 03 fund areas. 

According to Gugin this also 
puts the University in a very 
difficult position regarding the fu- 
ture quality of education in Am- 
herst. He explained that, "Be- 
cause the University must enroll 
1500 new students each year . . . 
funds must be available to supply 
them with the type of education the 
University has provided in the 
past . . ." He went on to say that 
no matter what the budget's final 
status is this year the 1500 ac- 
cepted students will be able to 
attend the University. "How- 
ever," he stated, "if the gov- 
ernor insists on making cuts like 
this, the future outlook is not

noon, at 3:00 p.m. as part of 
the UMass 1969 Summer Arts Pro- 
gram. Featured artists on this 
occasion wiU be the Hollander 
String Quartet (in- residence at 
the University for the summer) 
whose members are Francine Na- 
deau Walsh, first violin; Thomas 
Buffum, second violin; Denyse 
Nadeau Buffum, viola and Richard 
Walsh, cello. Thi s quartet is 
scheduled to perform four out- 
door chamber concerts at the Uni- 
versity during the summer and will 
initiate its residence in Amherst 
with this special children's con- 

The Hollander String Quartet is 
noted for its educational programs 
as a result of the involvement of 
members of the quartet in an in- 
school music demonstration pro- 
gram on a year-round basis in 

Bergen County, N.J. The Quar- 
tet has the added distinction of 
being the only ensemble of this 
kind in which its members are 
related. Mr. Buffum and Mr. 
Walsh married two sisters just a 
year ago and established the Quar- 
tet on a permanent basis. At 
present, the members are graduate 
students at Manhattan School of 
Music and are heavily involved in 
musical activities in the Metropol- 
itan New York area. 

The children's concert on the 
village green today is open to the 
public without charge, however, the 
audience is urged to bring blan- 
kets or pillows since chairs will 
not be provided. An acoustical 
sheU will be erected at the north 
end of the Common. The concert 
will last approximately forty- five 
minutes and will be interspersed 
with comments by members of the

UMass Budget 

(Continued from Page 1) 

Elaborating on this point, the 
Dean said there will only be one 
alternative left to the Trustees 
of the University if the budget 
remains in its present state. If 
the 1500 new students are accept- 
ed, a deficiency appropriation re- 
quest, regarded as a supplemental 
budget request, would have to be 
filed with the Legislature. In 
short, the University will be ask- 
ing for money not granted in the 
present budget to pay for the edu- 
cation of the new students. 

Gugin went on to speak about 
the financial situation of higher 
education in Massachusetts. He 
credited the work of Senate Pres. 
Maurice Donahue (D- Holyoke) in 
helping to restore almost $8 mill- 
ion to the entire state educat- 
ional budget as a very important 
if not crucial step in higher edu- 

Regarding the future of the bud- 
get, Gugin expressed hope it would 
move out of the Conference Com- 
mittee by the end of the week 
and to the Governor's desk ear- 
ly next week as the fiscal year 
ends on July 1st, next Tuesday. 

Although the Governor has the 
power to cut the budget again, a 
move which could only be over- 
ruled by a 2/3 vote of both the 
House and Senate, it is hoped the 
University will come out of the 
battle wit h at least a draw if not 
a favorable decision.

Upward Bound Begins Fouirth Summer Session at UMass 

Continuing in its role of moti- 
vating socially and educationally 
disadvantaged Western Massachu- 
setts high school students to fur- 
ther their education and supplying 
them with the tools to do it, the 
Upward Bound program at UMass 
has begun its fourth summer ses- 

One of 280 Office of Economic 
Opportunity (OEO) programs in the 
country, UMass Upward Bound is a 
six week summer session ending 
Aug. 10 at the University's Am- 
herst campus, and a counseling 
and tutoring follow-up during the 
school year. 

The program, financed by a 
$145,393 OEO grant this year, has 
seen 56 of its 65 graduates go on 
to institutions of higher education 
in the last two years. 

Director WiUiam Madaus ex- 
plained: "Upward Bound has tried 
to find a definite type of student - 
the acting-out type with a low re- 
cord of academic achievement, 
but who seems to have the po- 
tential to succeed in higher edu- 
cation - and we try to develop 
him into a college prospect." 

The program takes these 'po- 
tential college students" after 
their sophomore year in high sch- 

ool, and attempts to motivate them 
into seeking higher education. 
Through three summer sessions 
and tutoring and counseling dur- 
ing the school year, it provides 
them with the skills necessary to 
succeed in post -secondary edu- 

The students are recommended 
for the program by teachers, com- 
munity social workers, school 
guidance counselors, and civic lea- 

One hundred - fifteen students 
from Berkshire, Hampden, Hamp- 
shire, and Franklin counties will 
attend this summer's program. Of 

Israeli Cellist Thrills 800 in Bowker 

Tuesday evening in Bowker Aud- 
itorium, the Young Israeli Cellist 
Yehuda Hahani, the Canadian Pi- 
anist, Anahid Alexanian, DeBussy, 
Webern, Beethoven, Bach, Tchai- 
kovsky and an audience of 800 - 
the ingredients for a most delight- 
ful concert. 

"I would rather hear a per- 
former who occasionally missed 
notes and pitches but who played 
with musicality and understanding, 
tha n to hear a technically per- 
fect artist who plays with lack of 
sensitivity." said Mr. Hanani, a 
graduate of the Julliard School 
of Music. It was quite obvious 
that this philosophy was prevalent 
on Bowker stage Tuesday evening. 
For, while Mr. Hanani and his 
accompianist, Miss Alexanian, 
also a graduate of the Julliard 
School of Music, did make occa- 
sional technical errors, the errors 
went unnoticed or at least un- 
discussed, because of the sensi- 
tivity and musicality of the per- 
formers. The artists were, in a 
word, most exciting to hear and 

Four curtain calls at the close 
of the program were sufficient 
for Mr. Hanani and Miss Alex- 
anian to perform an encore. The 
performers delighted the audience 
and incited them to a standing 
ovation with a Cellistic redition 
of Variations on a theme from 
"Moses" by Rossini on One String 
by Paganini. 

The large responsive audience 
were most amused, educated and 
entertained by this last selection; 
however, to some it had an addi- 
tional meaning. The Music Edu- 
cators, I should hope, felt that the 
entire program that Mr. Hanani 
chose, not to mention the encore, 
was ideal in providing an overall 
picture of the cello and the abili- 
ties of the cellist. It might have 
been called a program of "Aware- 
ness". As one student said after 
the concert, "I came tonight on 

a whim, but I'll never miss one 
of these concerts again. It was 
great!" With a further inquiry, 
another student nearby said, "I 
always had an impression of long 
haired stuff, but I was really off 
the track. It really can be en- 

By the way, this program was 
offered free of charge courtesy of 
the Summer Arts Program. The 
next event in the series will be 
held next Tuesday evening, July 
1, at 8 p.m. when the Hollander 
String Quartet will have their first 
concert at The Berkshire Court- 
yard in Southwest. 

Sarge Names 

Mrs. Muriel Snowden, director 
and founder of Freedom House, 
Roxbury, has been appointed a 
member of the University of Mas- 
sachusetts Board of Trustees. 

Gov. Francis W. Sargent named 
her to the board to fill the ex- 
pired term of Fred Emerson of 

these, 40 are new students, and 
44 are "bridge students," or those 
who have graduated from high 
school this year, and attend th< 
summer session to brush up on 
subjects which they found diffi- 
cult in high school, or to preview 
college courses. 

The other students in the pro- 
gram take math, English and read- 
ing skills courses in the morning, 
and are free to choose elective 
courses in the afternoon. 

The electives are: community 
problems, drug and sex education, 
black history, psychology, film 
making, computer science, modern 
dance, drama, art, nature, biology, 
and a social work seminar. The 
students may also receive tutoring 
in the afternoons in any subject 
in which they are especially weak. 

All of the courses are taught 
in small seminars or discussion 
groups, rather than in the large, 
traditional, high school classroom 

"This is an extremely import- 
ant part of the program," ac- 
cording to Madaus. "Learning is 
based on a student-teacher re- 
lationship," he explained "and 
by a close, personal relationship 
we hope to help the student iden- 
tify with education. This kind of 
teaching promotes active partici- 
pation in learning." 

Many students and teachers a- 
gree that the program accomp- 

lishes this. 

"Nobody ever thought I had an 
idea worth listening to, so I never 
told anybody anything before. Now 
I talk about things with other 
people, and I really like learning 
things," one student reported. 

One teacher explained that the 
program does more than just get 
poor students into college. She 
said: "By teaching the student to 
teach himself you create a stable 
student, a student who will not 
cease his education with the com- 
pletion of school, and who will be 
more apt to explore the realm of 
knowledge through books for the 
rest of his life."

THURSDAY, JUNE 26, 1969 





The eves of the University will focus upon 
Beacon Hill this week as the Senate Ways and 
Means Committee report out next year's State 
budget. It is hoped in Whitmore that the Sen- 
ate will restore some of the money which has 
already been cut from the funds for public high- 
er education. 

In the proposed budget for fiscal year 1970. 
|123 million was asked for public higher edu- 
c ation, which includes the three campuses of 
the University, all the state colleges and tech- 
nical institutes. This figure was cut to $91 
million by the governor's office, and then to 
$88 million bv the House. 

In recent weeks Governor Francis \\. Sar- 
gent has come under fire from UMass President 
John »\. Lederle, UMass Boston Chancellor 
Franc is I.. Broderick. Senate President Maurice 
Donahue, House Speaker David Bart ley, and 
Senator Kdward Kennedy, for the large budget 
c ut. 

At the University's commencement exercises 
\la\ 31, Dr. Lederle said "the shortage of op- 
erating dollars has now brought us to a gra\e 
1 1 isis" 

At stake is the question ot whether Massa- 
chusetts. \hv home state of Horace Mann, with 
an annual budget approaching one and a half 
billion dollars, shall continue to expend that 
purse on welfare at a level which puts us dose 
to the top nationally in that area, while the 
share of tax dollars for public higher education 
ol oti i youth rides sadly along in 50th place, at 
rock bottom among all the states. 

The proposed University of Massachusetts 
Medical School is on trial for its life, a panel 
ot out-of-state physicians will recommend to 
Governor Francis »\. Sargent this week one of 
Five proposals that it believes this state should 
follow in tegards to medical education. 

I he history of the proposed UMass Medical 
s< hool goes back to 1948 when the first of a 
numbei ot legislative commissions was formed. 
Fourteen years later, in 1962. the Massachu- 
setts Legislature authorized the UMass Trus- 
tees to proceed with the construction of a med- 
ic al school loi approximate^ 101) students, i.e. 
an entering < lass ot 100 students per vear. The 
primary [actors underlying the legislature's 
authorizing de< ision were: 

1. The difficulties which seemingly qual- 
ified Massachusetts residents, especially 
those ot lowei and middle- income families. 
were having in gaining admission to medical 
s ( hools 

1. 11k rapid expansion of medical know- 
Iedg< and the increasing demand foi medical 

services by the public which together led to 
predictions of significant shortages of medi- 
cal personnel to render these services, and, 
5. The preeminence of Massachusetts, 
and particularly the Boston area, in both 
medical education and medical services 
which would provide a favorable setting for 
the development of a medical school of high 

In December 1902, Dr. Lamar Soutter, former 
Dean of the Boston University Medical School, 
was named Dean of the University of Massa- 
chusetts Medical School. Two and a half years 
later, in June 1905. after bitter debate, the 
trustees voted to locate the Medical School in 
Worcester. And ten months later, in April 
1906. the architects were appointed and started 
work on the design of the school. 

In June 1907 the development and capital in- 
vestment costs for the school were estimated to 
be S75 million. Also at this time it was decid- 
ed to purchase a building called the Shaw 
Building located neat the planned site of the 
medical science building and the teaching hos- 
pital. The Shaw Building which as purchased 
in October 1907 was to be renovated and used 
as a temporary medical science building for the 
fust entering class of 10 students in September 
1970 and the second entering class of the same 
size in 1971 . 

In June 1908 the National Advisory Council 
approved grants totalling S18.762.588 for the 
construction of the medical science building. 
In September of the same year S13.832.588 of 
this money was funded conditional on the start 
of construction by September 1909. The re- 
maining S4. 930. 000 was funded in January 
1909 In addition, a grant ol $10,430,000 for 
the construction of the teaching hospital was 
approved by the National Advisory Council in 
November 1908. but as of May 1969 this mom \ 
has not yet been funded. 

In January 1969 the estimated cost of the 
Medical School was revised upward to approx- 
imate^ 5125 million.

school would have a full time faculty of 192, offering both undergraduate ovate the facility, and its operating cost would be higher, per year, 
and graduate training, with the provision for a possible future exten- than the new facility. This would cut almost $60 million from the pro- 
sion into school of dentistry, nursing, and other health fields. A $110 ject. 
million operating cost over the next ten years would have to be met by 
tax money. 

Soutter Replies 

Soutter Replies 

1. A school owned by the State offers the only assuranceof 95 places 
a year to Massachusetts residents. 

2. It is the only plan which would furnish another badly needed re- 
ferral hospital outside of Boston. 

3. It is the only plan which can provide proper basis for a dental 
school cost $12,000,000. If built free standing under the other alter- 
natives it would cost $40,000,000. 

4. The same is also true for schools of nursing, the allied health 
professions and public health. The shortage in this State of support- 
ing personnel in hospitals is over 10,000 at the moment. 

5. It is the only alternative which provides enough land for the es- 
tablishment of a modern medical center. 

6. Its cost is less than for any of the other plans. 

7. It is the only planii which construction can start now and students 
be admitted a year from now. 

8. It is the only plan, except Alternative V, which will attract a good 
clinical faculty. 

9. It provides for expansion and addition of other schools and hospi- 
tals by having enough land. 

10. With tuition set at $200, a state school is the only way that low 
cost medical education can be provided for students from families of 
limited means. Tuitions at the three Boston schools are $2,100, 
$2,376, and $2,500. We will have scholarship money and loans as 

11. Massachusetts is the only major State without one or more State 
owned medical schools. More than half the Massachusetts residents 
going to medical school must go out of State. Why should they not be 
able to obtain a medical education within their own State at a reason- 
able cost .' 

This plan is next best to Number I but has the following disadvan- 

1. The cost of construction and operation of the hospital would be 
far greater than ours. (See attached table.) 

2. We would be operating a municipal hospital in competition with 
the local physicians in Worcester, which would not be good for the 
practice of medicine and is something which we have avoided to date by 
having a referral, and not a community hospital. 

3. The distance between the school and hospital requires 15 minutes 
of commuting each way for the majority of 400 students and 120 faculty 
at least twice a day. This is a serious deterrent to both good teaching 
programs and faculty recruitment. 

4. We would have to redesign our power plant as it is much too large 
for just the school and redesign the school to accommodate parts of 
the medical center now in the hospital (cafeteria, kitchens, house- 
keeping, etc.). 

5. We would lose all our Federal money ($35,000,000). 

6. The earliest we could admit a full class would be 1974 and possibly 

7. Land and houses around the Worcester City Hospital would have 
to be taken by eminent domain to provide room for additions, parking, 

Drop the present plans for a major Institution in Worcester and 
substitute a number of "comrn oity" medical schools are>und the 
state. The first might be opened in Worcester by 1973, with two more 
over the next decade in Springfield -H.lyoke and Fall River-N«w Bed- 
ford. Others could be established later in Lowell-Lawrence, Lynn- 
Salem, Prttsfield-North Adams, Fitchburg- Leominster and Boston. 

Students would spend their first year or year and a half at UMiss 
in Amherst and then transfer to a community school. The three in- 
itial schools would take 50 students each per year. 

Existing hospitals in each area would be us-ad. New construction 
for libraries, cla>srx>ms and offices would soft $io to $15 million 
for new facilities at Amherst. 

Annual operating costs can't be estimated without mo-e study but 
the expense "will probably be less" than for a single big school at 

The three initial schools would provide a net of betw»on 5S and 87 
added openings for Massachusetts students ann tally. 

Soutter Replies 

Alternative III 

This alternative is to build a two year school with students having 
to transfer to other schools for the last two years of their medical 
education. Dean Soutter did not respond to this proposal because Gov. 
Sargent has already stated that he would not consider this possibility. 

1. This alternative is illegal, The Trustees of the University on 
two occasions and the members of the General Court on 3 have voted 
on the "Modical School in Worcester". 

2. This alternative is infinitely more costly than any of the others 

3. Tnis alternative would delay the admission of the first students 
until 1976. 

4. This alternative is not like the plans in Indiana or Southern Ill- 
inois as stated in the report. It is educationally unsound. Our faculty 
has studied it at length and believes the school would never be ac- 

5. A clinical center established in Fad R; ver next to a nospital 
would draw patients from the other hospitals and doctors in that city 
and from New Bedford. : It would, do Now Bedford more harm than 
good. The same applies to establishing one in any of the other paired 
cities in the report. Ir ^ ..

Quits UMass 
Med School 

Worcester - One of the four fa- 
culty members of the proposed 
University of Massachusetts Med- 
ical School has resigned charging 
that the governor is allowing the 
school to die by delaying a de- 
cision on it. 

He said that other professors 
have told him they 'have every in- 
tention of remaining on the job and 
continuing to fight for a four -year 
medical school In Worcester." 

Dr. John G. King, director of 
the hospital that is scheduled to be 
built in connection with the medi- 
cal school, submitted his resigna- 
tion several weeks ago. 

He said that all the governor has 
to do to kill the school Is to "keep 
stalling until the agreement pro- 
viding matching Federal funds for 
the school expires. 

"If this sort of thing continues 
it will be Impossible to try to re- 
cruit good faculty people," Prof. 
Ashmore said. 

Gov. Sargent has postponed a 
final decision on the school until a 
panel of outside experts finish their 
study of a report on the feasibility 
of alternatives to building a state 
school at an estimated cost of $124 

Mirror of Opinion 

The Governor's Responsibility 

(The Worcester Telegram) 

"This report is full of mis-state- 
ments, ommlssions of important data, 
misuse of figures, and conclusions 
drawn on an unsound basis." 

Thus does Dean Lamar Soutter of the 
University of Massachusetts Medical 
School sum up his impressions of MIT 
Prof. Leon White's report to Gov. Sar- 
gent on the medical school issue. 

It is a harsh judgment, perhaps In- 
fluenced to some degree by Dean Sout- 
ter 's intense personal involvement. But 
anyone who reads the two documents, 
side by side, is apt to come away con- 
viced that Soutter 's rebuttal is solidly 
based, and that White's report is woe- 
fully Inadequate and unconvincing. 

The longer Gov. Sargent persists In 
his delaying tactics, the worse he looks. 
As the Medical School Committee of 
the Worcester Area Chamber of Com- 
merce put it this week, One governor 
really has only two alternatives: to go 
ahead with the medical school or to 
scrap it. 

The other options advanced by White 
simply are not practical. 

The highly publicized plan for "com- 
munity" medical schools scattered a- 
round the state Is a prime example of 
confusion. White seems to think it 
would cost less than the medical school 
in Worcester. But Campbell, Aldrlch 
and Nulty, who are expert consultants 
in hospital and academic building con- 
struction, say it would cost almost twice 
as much - $212 million as compared to 
$124 million for the Worcester school. 
Similarly, White juggles figures in 

unexplained ways. He says it would 
cost the state $110 million to run the 
proposed medical school at Worcester 
for the decade 1971-80, even though 
Dean Soutter 's staff had carefully esti- 
mated the cost at $47,500,000, and had 
told White so. 

White did not even get the right num- 
ber of Massachusetts residents to be 
admitted into each medical school 
class. Soutter told him the number 
would be 95, but White consistently uses 
he figure of 80, with no explanation 

Given these odd discrepancies, it is 
no wonder that the White report is sus- 
pected of being an effort to give the 
hatchet to the medical school here in 

Gov. Sargent would do well to dis- 
associate himself from the White re- 
port. His plan to have a group of out- 
side experts evaluate it has already 
been tarnished by the disclosure that 
some members of the panel have ties to 
existing medical schools In the Boston 
area, whereas others are connected 
with the "community" medical school 
idea being debated in Illinois. 

The governor cannot avoid his re- 
sponsibility much longer. Ifheisoutto 
kill the medical school, which has been 
almost 10 years in the planning and to 
which the state and federal governments 
have committed over $82 million, he 
should come out and say so. 

If he plans to go ahead with it, he 
should comeout and say that. He can- 
not sit on the fence forever. • 

A 'Study of a Study 

(The Springfield Union) 

It is unfortunate that the just -com- 
pleted study of possible courses in the 
building of a University of Massa- 
chusetts Medical School could not have 
been carried to the extent of recom- 
mendations on which Gov. Sargent and 
the Legislature could base a decision. 
But it was a one-man study by a busi- 
ness faculty member at MIT. A re- 
commendation should have the benefit 
also of insight into medical and admin- 
istrative aspects of the program. 

Gov. Sargent's decision to have a 
panel of out-of-state medical school 
authorities examine the study and make 
a recommendation was not really vul- 
nerable to the charges of delay and 
foot-dragging that erupted in the Legis- 
lature. Nevertheless, while an expert 
recommendation could save time that 
might otherwise be lost In State House 
bickering over the best course, it is 
important that the "study of a study" 
be completed as quickly as possible - 
consistent with sound appraisal of the 

The study report by Dr. Leon White 
of the Sloan School of Business at MIT 
differed in some respects from ealier 
indications of its content. An addition 
was the concept of community medical 
schools, a Springfleld-Holyoke school 
among them, to be built one at a time 
over a period of years. The basic 
medical science phase would be taught 
at the Amherst campus of the univer- 
sity. This, as Medical School Dean 
Lamar Soutter commented, could re- 
heat the old Worcester-or -Amherst 
site controversy that was decided by the 
university trustees in favor of Wor- 

It is important, however , that the 
university be equipped to accommodate 
young people of the commonwealth who 
seek to enter the medical profession, 
but for whom the opportunities for such 
education are limited. And it is urgent 
that an early start be made on the 
building phase, lest ever -rising costs 
destroy the prospect for any construc- 
tion at all in the near future. 

The Medical School Choice 

(The Boston Globe) 

Gov. Sargent should be guided by long- 
range consideration when he makes his 
decision on how best to resolve the 
problem of a shortage of physicians In 

An e/aluatlon of the five suggestions 
made to the governor by an M.I.T. 
study group still leads to the conclusion 
that the original concept is best: the 
construction of the proposed University 
of Massachusetts Medical School at 
Worcester with a 400-bed teaching 

None of the other proposals of 
M.I.T.'s Dr. Leon S. White would fur- 
nish the state witii a first-rate means of 
training a sufficient number of doctors 
to keep pace with Massachusetts' pop- 
ulation growth. 

Moreover, the state has a commit- 
ment of several years to the Worcester 

project as originally conceived, a com - 
mitment to which both Senate Pres. 
Maurice Donahue and House Speaker 
David Barley have rightly adhered. 

While there is some merit to the 
suggestion that Gov. Sargent study the 
possibllty of giving financial aid to the 
medical schools at Tufts, Harvard and 
Boston University, the resultant ex- 
pansion in enrollments does not offer 
an answer to physician needs one or two 
decades from now. 

Admittedly, the choice that must be 
made by the governor is not a simple 
one, especially in view of the com- 
monwealth's increasingly complex fi- 
nancial problems. 

Still, fiscal considerations should not 
be allowed to obscure the state's need 
for a medical school basically as 


THURSDAY, JUNE 26, 1969 


RSDAY, JUNE 26, 1969 



On Monday, the Board of Trustees will decide whether or not WMUA 
will increase its power from 10 watts to 1000 watts. 

A large segment of the student body has been unable to receive 
WMUS's weak 10 watt signal. Whether it be the commuter living in 
Northampton, the Greek living on South Pleasant St., or the sopho- 
more living on the south side of Washington Tower, many students are 
not hearing the station they paid $3.08 to hear. 

After considerable study a Washington consulting-engineering firm 
has reported that the only way WMUA's signal can be heard by the 
majority of students is for its antenna to be moved to Orchard Hill and 
its power incroased to 1000 watts. 

In addition, the campus radio station deserves its desired power 
increase. The staff has worked hard in converting WMUA from a third 
rate college radio station to the best college radio station to Western 

However, there have been some obstacles in the path of WMUA's 
expansion. Conservative elements in the speech department and the 
administration have lobbied against the power increase. They believe 
the students on this campus are not responsible enough to manage a 
1000 watt station. Also they fear that a more powerful WMAU could 
seriously compete with "their" WFCR. 

The University Broadcasting Council, which few people know exists 
and even fewer know its function, recommends that the station remain 
10 watts and that the entenna be moved to Orchard Hill. This should 
have been done several yars ago. It's too late to do now. The FCC 
has indicated that if WMUA °ver plans to increase its power, it must do 
so now, for within the next few years a "power freeze" will be im- 
posed on 10 watt college stations, due to the overcrowding on the FM 
band, prohibiting such increases. 

For the nearly one third of the UMuss student body which lives off 
campus, we urge the Trustees to grant the WMUA power increase.

Dr. Fiend andthe Budget 


The use of psychology in political and financial affairs has long been 
practiced, but never to the extent it is now being used by politicians 
and educators. 

Yesterday in speaking to my old friend and companion Dr. Siggie Fiend 
I happened to mention the sales tax. 

"All ya," Siggie said. "Das is der most wandibar use of reverse- 
reverse psychology I hast ever seen." Herr Govenor says two weeks 
ago, sales tax might be 5% on everying sold in der state. Und den to- 
day he says a 1% increase is ail das is needed because we found, yust 
this weekend, 40 million smackers we didn't even know vas dere. All 
he did vas first over estimate, den say yust a little increase vould do 
der tricks. All der people will be happy now because it would be yust 
a tiny little yump of 1%, instead of the first guess." 

"Amazing Siggie, do you realize what that kind of thinking could do 
for the Pentagon?" 

"Oh ya, sure, yust say an 8 billion doUar project cost 240 billion 
dollars, und den ven it costs 100 billion, no one vill scream der bloody 
murders. . I eefen noticed your baseball players are experts. Wen 
dey are not doing so gut or dey vant more monies, dey yust go into re- 
tirement. Ven dey return most everyone is pleased as punch to have 
dem back, und dey get dere vays." 

"Siggie I'm amazed. What a way to get things done. What could 
rrme things easier?" 

"Oh sure, it's, how do you say, groved?" 

"That's groovy Siggie." 

"Ya, groovy. Why you being a student at der University, you should 
have realized it years ago. Look at your budget cut by der boys an 
Beacon Hill. First der budget is cut 9 million, und den after lots of 
people do the yumping up and down business dey give some back to 
keep everyone happy as can be expected. Veil I hypothesize dey ver 
never going to cut der budget so mucy, so, dey yust cut part of der 
monies dey vas going to give back anyway." 

"Siggie this is just Loo much. Do you realize what this could mean to 
troop withdrawal if Nixon ever heard this, or the Mt dical School plans, 
or anything else? Siggie, it scares me. I really don't to even 
think about it!" 

Hmmmm, dis could be a serious proble mit you. Tell me, vas your 
toilet training happy or sad? Wait, don't tell me until you lay down on 
dis couch. Now, one must begin in der beginning

Sarge Comments 
On UM Budget 

(Ed. note: The following letter was 
received by Dave Stevens, Editor 
of Yahoo) 

Dear Mr. Stevens: 

Thank you for your recent let- 
ter concerning my recommended 
budget requests for the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts. 

I did cut the original request, 
not because I felt it excessive, 
but because Massachusetts is faced 
with a serious fiscal crisis. 

I proposed an appropriation of 
$45,075,550 for the University of 
Massachusetts and a total outlay 
of $99,569,625 for public higher 
education in general. The Legis- 
lature in turn cut my U. Mass 
budget recommendation by $1.48 
million to $43,563,350 and my 
recommendation for higher edu- 
cation by $3.53 million to $96, 

I am very concerned with our 
system of higher education for it 
is the key to the future success 
of our society. And I assure you 
that I will work towards improv- 
ing and expanding our system. 

I appreciate your writing. With 
best wishes, 

Francis W. Sargent 

Campus Riot Bill in Congress 

WASHINGTON - House liberals 
opposed to new federal require- 
ments for colleges to quell cam- 
pus rioting have cautioned against 
any move which might "under- 
mine the freedom of higher edu- 
cation in our country." 

Eleven Democrats and one Re- 
publican, members of the House 
Education Committee, said in a 
statement that a bill approved 
would "play into the hands of ex- 
tremist elements gn campus." 

The measure by Rep. Edith 
Green, D-Ore., second -ranking 
Democrat on the committee, would 
require colleges to file plans on 
how they would cope with student 
and faculty demonstrations as a 
condition of getting federal aid. 

Committee Chairman Carl D. 
Perkins, D-Ky., who opposes cer- 
tain sections of the measure, took 
the unusual step of scheduling a 
hearing on it, a day before his 
panel is scheduled to meet and 
possible vote on the bill. 

A coalition of 14 Republicans 
and four Democrats support the 
measure - a bare majority of 
the 35 members on the committee. 

The majority of witnesses op- 
posed the Green bill. They in- 
clude Education Commissioner 
James E. Allen Jr., who has said 
no new legislation is needed, and 
the presidents of the Universities 
of California at Berkeley, Texas, 
Alabama, North Carolina, Michi- 
gan, Chicago and Yale and Bran- 

Mrs. Green said that Perkins' 
"surprised" her but that she was 
not opposed to hearing the educa- 

The twelve liberal committee 
members praised Perkins' action 
and said 'full and thorough testi- 
mony from those most affected by 
the proposed legislation is vitally

Medical School 

Soutter IV Continued from Page 5 

6. In order to run a teaching porgram in a hospital used as a 
school's principal hospital, the school would have to put its own full 
time man in charge of each service. They would have to fully control 
all staffing and admission policies of patients. It is unlikely that this 
would be acceptable to the staff of the community hospitals. 

7. Students at the end of two years in Amherst when faced by the 
alternative of going to a medical school attached to a community 
hospital or transferring to a madical school with a large modern 
medical center would, if at all financially or academically possible, 
transfer. All 4-year schools have room to take in more students in 
the third year. This alternative would practically guarantee the better 
students completing their educaiton elsewhere (mustly out of State), 
and the poorer ones staying at our school. 

8. The following construction would be necessary to implement the 
report: --a medical science building in Amherst for 300 students, 
4 clinical science centers ( Worcester, Springfield, Pittsfield and 
Fall River), adding teaching space to 5 hospitals, one in each of the 
above cities except Springfield, where two would have to be used. 

9. This plan prohibits developing properly, badly needed programs 
in dentistry, nursing, public health, and for the allied health pro- 

10. The budget for operating 4 clinical and one preclinical school 
as contrasted to a single school wouid be much greater. There would 
be 5 administrators, 4 of each type of clinical cepartment and 5 
libraries, for example. 

White Proposal 

1. This alternative is unconstitutional. The earliest that the con- 
stitution could be altered to permit its implementation would be 1972 
or 1973. 

2. The figures of operating costs and construction costs in the 
report are only projected ones. If our school is eliminated and the 
only source of more places for Massachusetts residents is at the schools 
in Boston, the schools will be in a position to name any sum they wish 
lor construction and operation. 

3. To add 100 students at the Boston schools will probably cost more 
not less, than building our school because of escalation and the delays 
before construction can start, 

4. These schools by choice, take in 76% of their students from out of 
State now. As soon as enough Federal money becomes available with 
no requirements to admit Massachusetts residents, they need not renew 
their contracts with the State. 

5. These are national schools and should receive their support from 
the Federal government. For every $1,000,000 Massachusetts gives 
them, the taxpayer s pay 100%. For every $1,000,000 given them by the 
Federal government, our taxpayers pay $30,000. 

Soutter Replies 

Alternative V 

Give state subsidies to medical schools run by Tufts and Boston 
University. Both are described as having financial troubles, and have 
asked the state to consider paying for expansion plans plus yearly 
operating grants. 

Tufts would like to increase its enrollment by 70 students and B I' 
by 40. Tufts would like $12 million for new classrooms and labs and 
B. U. would like up to $15 million for new facilities. Tufts would 
like operating subsidies of $2.8 million a year and B. U. $1.5 million 

The expansion plans would provide a net of 41 to 50 added openings 
a year for Massachusetts students. 

Dwight reports that the state constitution probably bars state sub- 
sidies to the private schools, but that this legal obstacle might be over 
come in the future.

lenn Campbell Tackles Acting 


It must be fairly difficult by 
now to surprise Glen Campbell. 
The country's newest singing sen- 
sation has been around and 
knows the score. If he wanted to, 
Campbell certainly could rest on 
his laurels. 

Born in Delight, Arkansas, 
Campbell was a musical child pro- 
digy. By" the time he was 15, he 
was playing in bands and his ca- 
reer has moved steadily upward 
since then. He conquered, the me- 
dium of television, beginning by 
appearing as the Smothers Bro- 
thers summer replacement, but so 
popular that he soon had his own 
regular show. Yes, Campbell 

could rest. But that is not his 
way. What was left? Why the 
"movies," of course. And now, 
even that has come to pass — 
and his is no ordinary film debut. 
Campbell was signed by producer 
Hal Wallis for a starring role in 
Paramount Pictures' "True Grit," 
film version of the best-selling 
novel by Charles Portis. Campbell 
plays a Texas Ranger named La 
Boeuf who helps a 14-year-old 
Arkansas girl track down her fa- 
ther's murderer in 1880. 
Campbell may have thought he 

was through with surprises by 
the time filming was completed, 
but producer Wallis had more in 
store for him. Wallis signed him 
up for another starring role in 
Paramount's forthcoming "Nor- 
wood," also based on a book by 
Charles Portis. 

"True Grit," now playing at 
the Campus Cinema stars Camp- 
bell, John Wayne and Kim Darby. 
The film was produced in Techni- 
color by Hal Wallis, directed by 
Henry Hathaway and written by 
Marguerite Roberts.

Reflections on Omaha 


BOSTON - If you believe col- 
lege baseball coaches and ex- 
perts, then you have learned the 
sport is dying. The reasons they 
give are complex. Attendance is 
lacking. Interest is lacking. The 
Eastern schools don't play enough 

game s to compete evenly with the 
western and southern bastions. 
Pro teams put too much pres- 
sure on their recruits and even- 
tually steal the best prospects be- 
fore the poor innocent college 
kids have used their eligibility. 
After spending a week in Om- 

aha, Nebraska, this writer can 
emphatically term this criticism 
unadulterated, unequivicable non- 

Furthermore, if you believe so- 
cial theorists and world travel- 
ers, then you have learned there 
are no friendly people in this 
country, only cynical, gruff real- 
ists. Again after spending a week 
in Omaha, Nebraska, the above 
theory also is on its way to the 

Maybe it was the fact that this 
was after all the College World 
Series. This was the best, and 
the rest can't be judged after see- 
ing them. An average of a little 
more than 7000 people attending 
the games does not indicate a 
lack of interest. The last two 
games were sellout 11,000 plus 
crowds. There goes one argu- 
ment of the experts. 

The baseball was excellent. And 
there were plenty of upsets. Or 
at least upsets to the experts. 
The biggest ones were fashion- 
ed by two eastern teams, UMass 
and N.Y.U. Goodbye to another 

And sure the pro scouts were 
there. But, and this observation 
can be made only in regard to 
UMass players, the scouts did 
not contact player s until after 
action. They did not pressure 
players or put undue demands on 
their time or practice. 

Out at Omaha 

Mon. 6-9 p.m., Tues. 6-8 p.m., 
Wed. 6-9 p.m., Thurs. 6-9 p.m. 
Fri. 6-8 p.m. and Sat. 2-5 p.m. 

Meanwhile the city of Omaha 
took the tourney seriously. The 
people treated you like you really 
were a big celebrity. Sure this 
is the biggest event the city un- 
dertakes all year. But what's 
wrong with that? Omaha has run 
the tourney for 20 years, and 
they must have learned that ev- 
erything runs more smoothly if 
you are genuinely friendly to vis- 

UMass , of course, had the great- 
est moment in recent school sports 
history with its 2-0 win over top- 
ranked Southern Illinois in the 
first round. The Redmen were 
playing not only for themselves, 
but also for New England, the 
Yankee Conference, and anyone 
who thinks gimmicks have a cer- 
tain tastelessness. Bush is the 
only word for Southern Illinois' 
batgirls, bermuda short uniforms 
and psychedelic batting helmets. 
Bush also were the Saluki claims 
of Number One ranking. 

Coach Dick Bergquist and his 
UMass charges were eliminated 
after the So. Illinois win with two 
straight losses. The ultimate 
winner of the tourney, Arizona 
State finally sent UMass home. 
Arizona State ha s won four of the 
last five years, with such play- 
ers as Reggie Jackson, Rick Mon- 
day, Sal Bando dotting their ros- 

But it was obvious, even before 
third baseman Tim Berringer of 
the Redmen caught a foul pop to 
end the 2-0 win, that UMass was 
an equal to anyone in the tour- 
ney. It was this knowledge that 
has to be about the most impor- 
tant thing of the tourney. It gave 
a certain delicious feeling to rea- 
lize that the old cow college in 
Amherst could compete with the 
UCLA, Texas, Arizona State and 
the likes. 

Yes, the most important thing, 
except maybe for one other as- 
pect of the week. Friends were 
made in Omaha. Friends that 
felt a little lousy parting for God 
knows how long. But all made 
vows to "see you next year" and 
all that sentimentalism that usu- 
ally makes anyone nauseous. 

But this was sincere. First the 
Omahans were not the type to be 
insincere. And, frankly, from all 
appearances, UMass has a phen- 
ominally excellent shot at making 
the College World Series once 
again. Returning stars dot the 
roster. Freshman stars will chal- 
lenge the veterans at most pos- 

The 1969 UMass baseball team is 
the greatest in school history. 
Next year can be better. And, 
besides, the Redmen have a few 
friends they want to renew ac- 
quaintances with. They're all in

Med School Panel 
Says Best Bet is 
UMass Medical School 

(Wir 0hiBBatt)UBtt\8 

Summer $tat t$num 



panel of medical experts have told Gov. Francis W. 

Sargent that Massachusetts has invested too much money on the pro- 
posed state medical school in Worcester to back out now. 

But the panel has also warned that the Worcester project opens the 
way to great expense - possibly much more than the undertaking's 
current estimated cost of $124 million. 

There was no immediate comment from the governor but a spokes- 
man said today that Sargent may issue a statement later this week. 

However, other sources indicated the panel told the governor that 
if any plan for expanded production of doctors was followed, it should 
be by subsidizing the three existing private medical schools in the 

The panel also recommended that every cost- cutting avenue be stud- 
ied and used because of the expected spiraling cost of building amed- 
ical school from scratch. 

The panel - six out-of-state medical experts - was named by the 
governor several weeks ago to make recommendations on a report on 
the medical school written by Dr. Leon S. White of MIT. 

Dr. White's report included these possibilities: proceed with the 
Worcester school; build the school but not a connected teaching hos- 
pital; develop a system of community medical schools; build a two-year 
medical school; or subsidize existing private schools. 

Trustees of the University of Massachusetts approved development 
of a medical school in 1965 when the cost of such a facility was es- 
timated at $40 million. 

Sargent ordered the project re-examined after the cost estimates 
more than tripled. 


Lederle, Tippo Tell Trustees 
New Budget Means Cutbacks 

Cuts in student services, including possible elimination of the 1970 summer school, were predicted 
by UMass officials in the face of a budget cut. 

Pres. John W. Lederle told UMass trustees at a meeting in Waltham that a supplemental budget will 
be submitted, seeking about $10. 5- million which was cut from the original $49- million requested. 

Lederle said "severe belt tight- 
ening" is necessary to operate the 
university under the $38 million 
approved last week by Gov. Francis 
W. Sargent and the legislature. 
The governor had cut the original 
request by about $10- million and 
the legislature shaved an addition- 
al $663,700. 

How's This for Progress 







Groundbreaking for the new 28 story library. was held last April. Some of the UMass 
notables participating are Provost Oswald Tippo, newly named Director of University 
Libraries David Clay and UMass Planning Officer, Jack Littlefield. fourth from the left. 

Hansen takes a swing 

Coach Bergquist 


Despite rumors to the contrary this is not the hole that Gov. Francis W. Sargent has 
dug for the University. Completion date for the new library is 1971. 

UMass Provost Oswald Tippo 
told the trustees the university 
will only be able to spend $16 
per student for supplies, library 
books and services - $18 less than 
last year. Provost Tippo also 
said that unless the requested funds 
are restored, the university may 
have to freeze filling new faculty 
positions and all other vacant pos- 
itions, resulting in cancellation of 
dozens of class sections and some 
of the courses scheduled for the 

Other alternatives outlined by 
Provost Tippo were: elimination 
of the 1970 summer school, cutting 
down many student dormitory coun- 
selors and heads of residences, 
reducing the use of part-time and 
student help, and permitting no in- 
crease in 1970 fall enrollment. 

Tippo noted the 1970 budget ap- 
proved by the legislature, although 
cut by about $11- million from the 
university's original request, is 
about $4.8- million higher than the 
1969 budget. He said the increase 
is swallowed up by salaries for 100 
new faculty members and full- year 
obligations for raises and appoint- 
ments approved in January. 

In other business the Board of 
Trustees turned down a request for 
a power increase for the campus 
radio station, WMUA. The trus- 
tees felt that more study on the 
proposal is needed before allowing 
the station to increase to 1000 
watts from its present 10 watts. 

The trustees approved a $150 
million building program on the 
UMass-Boston campus at Colum- 
bia Point with facilities for 5,000 
students. The proposed comple-

Board Chairman Joseph P. Heal- 
ey raised the problem of the very 
tight building schedule if the 1972 
completion date is to be met. A 
proposal was made that the Board 
meet with the legislature to dis- 
cuss settin g up a special com- 
mission to deal with this build- 
ing program as rapidly as possible. 
If the project has to go through 
the understaffed Bureau of Build- 
ing Construction it might mean 
months or even years of delay.

lege system, according to Pro- 
fessor Nevin Weaver, is that it will 
allow for closer contact between 
faculty and students. It will also 
provide the students with guidance 
and assistance outside the class- 
room, thus alleviating some of the 
confusion and lost feeling that a 
huge commuter college can some- 
times create. The separate col-

Psych Dept. Head Named 
New Dean of Grad School 

Dr. Mortimer H. Appley, head of the UMass psychology department, 
has been named dean of the Graduate School, it was announced Monday 
by UMass President John W. Lederle. 

Dr. Appley succeeds Dr. Edward C. Moore who resigned a year ago 
to become vice-president for graduate studies and research at the 
State University of New York at Binghamton. Dr. Arthur C. Gentile, 
associate dean of the Graduate School, has been acting dean during 
the past year. 

Over the past 20 years Dr. Appley has accumulated a distinguished

Currently he is chairman of the Education and Training Board of the 
American Psychological Association. He is a Fellow of the American 
Psychological Association, the American Association for the Advance- 
ment of Science, and the International Council of Psychologists. He 
is an editorial consultant for the "Psychological Review," "Physio- 
logy and Behavior," and the "Canadian Journal of Psychology." 

Dr. Appley will assume his post Sept. 1. 



UMass will Never See Again Josef Mlot-Mroz 




It was on the crisp and sunny day before Thanksgiving vacation last year that Josef Mlot-Mroz paid 
his last visit to UMass. Seizing-upon the holiday to proclaim his devotion to "God and America", the 
Polish Freedom Fighter marched around the Union, warning all those he saw of the "Jewish-Communist 
Conspiracy ," which is about to ruin the country. 

Carrying a red, white and blue 
hand-painted sign, he marched to 
the top of the stairs in front of 
the Union and asked the handful 
of people around to join in his 
fight against the enemy from with- 
in. As his gentle urgings took 
the form of hoarse shouts, a crowd

protest demonstrators to help Am-

President" and "Stand Up for 
America" bumper stickers off the 
car, the crowd thinned a bit. A few 
people climbed on top of the car 
but, after pounding on the roof 
for about five minutes, climbed 
back off. 

After he finished reading the 
RECORD, Mlot-Mroz started the 
engine and drove off into the sun-

on-lookers, and Mlot-Mroz was 
quickly surrounded by about a 
hundred students. 

The crowd closed in on him. and 
even went so far as to insult the 
Polish Freedom Fighter's intel- 
ligance. But this didn't fluster 
Mlot-Mroz. He calmly ran over 
to his new, 1969, maroon Cadillac, 
climbed inside, locked the doors, 
and began to read the RECORD

And that may be the last time 
Mlot-Mroz saves the University. 

According to a recent story, 
Mlot-Mroz has hung up his pro- 
test signs for good, as he pre- 
pares to devote himself, full time, 
to "being a good husband." He 
plans to marry later this year.

UTexas Votes 
Student's Atty 

AUSTIN, Texas - (CPS) - The 
University of Texas System Board 
of Regents has approved a stu- 
dent proposal for the creation of 
an Office of Students' Attorney for 
the UT Austin Students' Associat- 

The purpose of the office, which 
will be headed by a private prac- 
ticing attorney, is to provide con- 
tinual legal advice for the Students' 
Association and to act as counsel 
in matters of contracts, suits, 
complaints, negotiations, and sim- 
ilar activities. The SUMMER 
TEXAN, student newspaper, re- 
ports the attorney also, with two- 
thirds approval of the Student As- 
sembly, could represent an in- 
dividual student "in any case that 
involves the interests of students 

However, the Regents have put 
some restrictions on the use of 
the attorney, who will be paid out 
of student activity fees. They 
specified the attorney could not be 
employed to represent any student, 
faculty member, or staff mem- 

nounced in an emotion packed 
speech, "This is my last speech, 
this is my last banquet." 

But through his 16 year career. 
Mlot-Mroz has become the most 
famous of all Massachusetts Polish 
Freedom Fighters. He demon- 
strated for his cause during sev- 
eral poor-people marches on 
Washington, made last spring's 
anti- war mobilization in New York, 
and has been a frequent "guest" 
at "pray-ins" on the Boston Com- 

The highlight of his career came, 
however, in 1968 in Boston. At a 
Sunday afternoon demonstration 
Mlot-Mroz had the honor of being 
stabbed on television. Some claim 
that he stabbed himself, but, any- 
way gripping his arm in pain. 
Mlot-Mroz artfully fell at the feet 
of a television cameraman. As 
he fell to the ground he cried, 
"God bless America, land that I 

Other marks of his success are 
his 62 days spent in jail for dis- 
turbing the peace and his 1964 con- 
viction of inciting to riot. 

While he will no longer be mar- 
ching, Mlot-Mroz will continue to 
publish a monthly bulletin "to get 
out the news suppressed by the 
daily press." 

In the past, these bulletins 
have published lists of "known 
traitors and Communists." In- 
cluded in the lasts have been the 
late President John F. Kennedy, 
editor Erwin D. Canham, and CBS 
radio vice-president and general 
manager of WEEI Donald J. Trag-

of administrative or disciplinary 

Sroceeding held by the Regents, 
tie Chancellor, or by any insti- 
tution of the System. 

The Regents further stipulated 
that the lawyer could not be ut- 
ilized in criminal court proceed- 
ings and could not participate in 
any civil suits against the Uni- 
versity of Texas System or a mem- 
ber of its administration who is 
sued in his official capacity. 

The attorney will receive be- 
tween $9,000 and $14,000 salary 
annually, depending on experience 
and ability. The attorney could 
be dismissed by a recommenda- 
tion of two-thirds of the total 
membership of the Student Assem- 
bly, after approval by a law fac- 
ulty committee.

opportunity for more experimenta- 
tion and flexibility. 

Chancellor Francis L. Broder- 
ick also noted the urgency of meet- 
ing the 1972 completion date, not 
only because of additional costs 
with each year of delay, but be- 
cause of the pressing need for 
more places for the rapidly in- 
creasing number of young people 
who will be of college age in the 
next decade. By 1980 there will 
be a shortage of approximately 
113,000 college places, even taking 
into consideration the completion 
of the UMass- Boston campus. 

In other action the trustees ap- 
proved three new Ph.D. programs 
at UMass. One is "for Oceanic 
Engineering, the other education 
and the third human movement, 
a connection of physical education. 

Josef Mlot-Mroz, who said he is retiring, marched in 
and around the Student Union last Nov. (Daily Collegian 
photo by John Kelly). 

So the career of Josef Mlot- 
Mroz is over. Or is it? 

Gordon D. Hall, noted student 
of American extremism for the 
past 20 years, writing in the Bos- 
ton GLOBE, predicts, "that by 

the fall the Salem house painter 
will come out of partial retire- 
ment and again start muscling his 
way to the head of someone else's 
picket line." 

Clay Named Dir. of Libraries 

David M. Clay, acting director of libraries at UMass since 1966, has 
been named Director of University Libraries, it was announced by 
Provost Oswald Tippo. 

As director, Clay will oversee the operations of Goodell Library and 
the nine departmental libraries on the campus. He will coordinate ac- 
quisition, staff administration, and the development of services at these 

Clay's appointment comes at a time of rapid expansion of library 
facilities at Amherst. A new 28- story library is now under construc- 
tion in the center of campus and is scheduled to open in the summer of 
1971. The building will have a capacity of 2.5 million volumes and will 
be able to accommodate 3,000 students at one time. 

Clay was instrumental in planning the new library. He was chairman 
of the Faculty Senate library committee, and he played a key role in 
obtaining $2.5 million in federal funds to help finance the building. 

"This new facility," Clay explained, "will triple the central library 
facilities on campus. We hope it will allow us to develop a much larger 
and more comprehensive system of library services on this campus." 

Clay came to UMass as a philosophy instructor in 1961 and was made 
an assistant professor the following year. He has served as secretary 
of the Faculty Senate, and was appointed acting director of University 
libraries in 1966. 

He received his B.A. degree from Swarthmore College in 1957 and 
his M.A. from Princeton University in 1959. 

Gugin Gives Details 
Of New Univ. Budget 


The continuing story of the University budget is now in its final act 
as Governor Sargent signed the budget for fiscal 1969-70. The final 
figure after more additions and deletions is $38,077,850. 

The story was nearing its final 
stages when the Senate Ways and 
Means Committee received the 
recommended House budget of $37, 
127 850. 

Before moving to the Senate 
floor the committee added $800,000 
to the House figure, and once on the 
floor the Senate continued this up- 
ward trend by appropriating $700, 
000 in 03 funds and $150,000 for 

Things began to appear a bit 
brighter until the budget went to 
the joint conference committee be- 
fore reaching the Governor's desk. 
Here, $700,000 alloted for 03 funds 
was cut and the final budget was 
sent to, and signed by the Gov- 

The final budget figure, and the 
$700,000, - 03 cut means sever- 
al things for the University. Pri- 
marily, this leaves the Amherst 
campus $8,960,425 short of its or- 
iginal request , and unable to sup- 
plement several functioning pro- 
jects or begin new programs plan- 
ned for this fiscal year. 

However, according to David A. 
Gugin^ Assistant Dean of Admin- 
istration, the 03 cut of $700,000 
could be one of the more impor- 
tant deletions in the budget. 

The 03 fund is money vital to 
the operation of the University in 

that it provides tor temporary 
help. Included on the 03 payroll 
are graduate teaching assistants, 
student help, and the summer 

The University, in attempting to 
meet the minimum federal wage 
requirement for student help of 
$1.45/hr., keep the summer school 
program operating, and pay other 
temporary help has found itself in 
a difficult situation of needing this 
help, but not at the moment being 
able to pay for it. 

According to Gugin, the hopeful 
solution appears to be the filing 
of a supplemental budget request, 
meaning the university is still 
asking for more money. 

Gugin stated however that, "if 
we don't get adequate funding 
through the supplemental budget we 
are either going to be in a def- 
iciency situation, or we are going 
to have to cut back vital Univer- 
sity programs such as the summer 

The budget in its present state 
leaves the University with $950,000 
more than it had upon leaving the 
House, but still without money 
deemed vital to several university 
programs. The granting of an ad- 
equate supplemental budget could 
be the solution to this problem.

scheduled to be held outdoors on 
the Southwest Mall at 8:00 p.m. 

The Preservation Hall Jazz Band 
of New Orleans play sounds much 
like what w e call Dixieland, or 
Dixieland jazz. But an experien- 
ced listener will detect that it is 
rawer, more primitive, less elab- 
orate, less precise. It is prac- 
ticed, yet free, and though the 
dark faces behind the instruments 
still look solemn, their music is 
warm and happy. The attraction 
is jazz - plain, unadorned, foot- 
stamping early jazz played by 
elderly Negro musicians who lear- 
ned their trade in funeral march- 

The Preservation Hall Jazz Band 
consists of five musicians. DeDe 
Pierce, blind trumpeter, and his 
wife, Billie, pianist and blues sing- 
er, have been playing together thir- 
ty years in New Orleans and thr- 
oughout the country on tours. Mem- 
bers of the Band, all of whom are 
over 60, have been playing in New

ishes for over 40 years and are 
among the few living talented jazz- 
men who originated the New

Box Office Policy 

For UM Summer Students 

All University of Massachusetts Summer School students, including 
those who are attending Summer Institutes, will be given free admis- 
sion to the plays of the Summer Repertory Theatre, in accordance 
with the following policy: 

All Summer Theatre tickets are issued on a reserved- seat basis, 
whether on "cash" or "I.D." sale. There are no general admission 
seats; everyone who attends must obtain a reserved-seat ticket at the 
box office. Reserved-seat tickets may be obtained "at-the-door," 
but it is wise to make reservations ahead of time, especially for 
Friday and Saturday performances. The box office is located in the 
lobby of Bartlett Auditorium (lowe r level, Bartlett Hall), and is open 
daily 9 to 5, 9 to 9 on performance days. The telephone is 545-2579. 

Each Summer School or Institute I.D. card entitles its holder to 
three admissions. Students who attend both sessions of the Summer 
School will receive, in effect, six free admissions. However, admis- 
sion on the I.D. cards of the first Summer School session will be 
granted only for the duration of that session (through Saturday, July 19). 

The student admission is recorded by a punch- mark in the holder's 
I.D. card. Therefore, the summer student must present his I.D. card 
at the box office and have it punched in order to receive free the 
reserved- seat Summer Theatre ticket. After the card has been 
punched three times, it is no longer valid for a free admission. 

Students who reserve tickets must pick them up by 5 p.m. of the 
evening of performance. After that time, unclaimed student reser- 
vations will be subject to "cash" sale.

Education's Nature 

(EDITORS NOTE: This is a reprint from the Daily Texan, 
Wednesday, May 14th, 1969.) 

The nature and function of American universities have been in 
the spotlight of serious inquiry by protesting students during this 
last academic year. 

The old, sturdy, oak-like nature of the university has been 
chipped away with every new disclosure of defense contracts, 
defense research, and big business. Suddenly the stately ivory 
towers of truth and education have become a tarnished tawdry 
yellow with more disclosures about another "nature" of Ameri- 
can universities. 

American universities are involved in numerous business deals 
and various other corruptions. So universities have been exposed 
and now their image as a silent place for introspective medita- 
tion and learning for youth no longer is accurate. Besides hav- 
ing professors on the side, the institutions of education are being 
used as tools for the federal government, corporations and in- 

So obviously the education institution exists for a multiplicity 
of reasons. It too often appears that educating of students is 
only one very minor subsidiary of that huge institution. 

And the lofty ideals of youth discovering the "truth" and 
being "educated" has also been tarnished by petty and insigni- 
ficant courses, exams and professors. As Henry Adams claimed 
when discussing his own education, "Nothing in education is 
so astonishing as the amount of ignorance it accumulates in 
the form of inert facts." 

Students learn to be scheming and conniving about satisfying 
the peculiar whims of their professors. 

Students leam the necessary devious ways of getting around 
all the confining rediculous red tape which is one minor detour 
in trying to seek education. 

Students can no longer have the "awed respect" for the educa- 
tional institution that they once may have had. 

First, often the administration is not comprised of "edu- 
cators" but rather technicians who run the physical details 
of the institution. These men are the pawns being pushed 
around to the right squares of the institution chess board by 
a Board of Regents or Board of Trustees. 

"And If You Don't Get Admitted There, What Other 
College Would You Like To Shut Down?" 



SDS Plans to Infiltrate Factories 

Second, the "educational process" can be likened to the 
processing of any other quality - like meat processing. It's 
amazing that students haven't thought of themselves as nice, 
squarely shaped and processed packages of minced ham. 

Thirdly, the institution with its regents and trustees and 
land and investments is similar to any other huge corpora- 
tion. So the institution is no longer remote, ivory or different 
from an y other part of society. 

And the professors are li ke businessmen trying to better 
themselves through research, or grants or publishing or depart- 
ment chairing • instead of busi ness deals. 

The whole educational institution is no longer that spe- 
cial idyllic place. And the student's education is no longer a 
special idyllic mental reflection. 

So students have their own personal and individual ex- 
periences to reflect upon. Certainly students' views on their 
"education," and what it has been or should be, are greatly 

But the thoughts of the following men on the subject may be 
particularly relevant. 

Thomas Hughes, "Life isn't all beer and skitles; but beer and 
skitles or something better of the same sort must form a good 
part of every Englishman's education." 

Mark Twain, "Training is everything. The peach was once a 
bitter almond; cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college 

Woodrow Wilson, "Of course, when all is said, it is not learn- 
ing but the spirit of service that will give a college place in the 
public annals of the nation. It is indispensable, it seems tome, 
if it is to do its right service, that the air of affairs should be 
admitted to all its classrooms. 

"I do not mean the air of party politics, but the air of the 
world's transactions, the consciousness of the solidarity of the 
race, the sense of the duty of man toward man, of the presence 
of men in every problem, of the significance of truth for guidance 
as well as for knowledge, of the potency of ideas, of the promise 
and the hope that shine in the face of all knowledge." 

Paul Weiss, "The function of college is not to prepare you for 
life. It is to prepare you to be a man, and when you are a man 
you can face lite, whatever the conditions." 

Results of the nationally planned 
SDS summer "work-in" have so 
far been scarcely visible this sum- 
mer. The SDS circulating 15,000 
instruction sheets late this spring 
on the procedures of getting fol- 
lowers into the factories, have not 
been able to take any further steps 
in the vacation exercise. 

The SDS had hoped to have its 
members influence the workers 
into a student- worker cot'tion, 
which would then organize strikes 
against the establishment, and give 
the working class more power. 
Tangible results so far are two 
cards, not necessarily posted by 
the SDS that turned up on the walls 
at the Ling-Temco-Vought Aero- 
space Corp. plant at Grand Pra- 
irie, Tex. 

Above and below the slogan on 
the card were the letters SDS. 
The slogan read "If you're no 
part of the solution, your part of 
the problem." 

The SDS also has had part in 
associating themselves with three 
strikes in the nation, but there 
is no evidence they were started 
by the SDS. The evidence does 


seem to indicate the SDS is jump- 
ing on the band wagon, of pre- 
viously organized strikes. 

In one of the strikes truckdriv- 
ers and warehousemen say that they 
want no association with the SDS. 
However, they do admit the SDS 
members are helping the strike 
and are taking no strong measures 
to keep them away. 

Furman Jenkins, business agent 
for the Teamsters Local 639 said: 
"We don't talk to them. Because 
as soon as we talk to them people 
will think we're tied in with them. 

The SDS does have some of the 
executives on the alert for the 
summer infiltrations as evidence 
by the letter sent out by Rep. 
James M. Collins (R- Texas) last 
month, to 24 defense plant naming 
them as targets of the summer 

Organized labor is confident the 
student organization professed to 
"organize the working class" will 
get little support from the workers. 

An aid to AFL-CIO Pres. Geo- 
rge Meany was quoted as saying. 
"The workers aren't going to be 
pushed around like those SDS lead- 
ers push around the majority of 

college students, and I expect em- 
ployers won't be as chicken as 
some college presidents. 

Fed Govt. Acts on Trouble 

WASHINGTON - The Justice Department is organizing a task force 
that will rely on outside, "military-type intelligence" to prosecute 
hard-core elements responsible for violence on college campuses, 
it was disclosed. 

Plans for the campaign, ordered by Atty. Gen. John N. Mitchell, 
were described in general terms by Jerris Leonard, assistant attor- 
ney general in charge of civil rights, in testimony before a Senate 
appropriations subcommittee. 

The clearest application will be against disruption of ROTC ac- 
tivities on the campuses, he said, because that program is strictly 

But he added the law also might be violated if students with fed- 
erally supported loans or scholarships are blocked from their class- 
rooms or if students whose rent is partially paid under the GI Bill 
of Rights are prevented from entering their dormitories. 

Leonard said the Justice Department is "in two specific situations 
right now," but he did not say where. Although the task force is still 
being organized, he said, it will require "some intelligence input 
from outside the department itself, military-type intelligence

SDS Convention Ends in Major Split Between Factions 

CHICAGO— (CPS)-SDS split last week- 
end over serious ideological differences on 
racism, black and Third World Libera- 
tion, and women's liberation. After pur- 
ging the Progressive Labor Party (PLP), 
SDS, led by National Secretary Mike Klon- 
sky and Inter-Organization Secretary Ber- 
nadine Dohrn, left the Chicago Coliseum 
announcing that Sunday's meeting would be 
elsewhere. PLP and friends remained, 
also claiming to be the real SDS. 

Early in the convention it became clear 
that the differences between PLP, sup- 
ported by the Student- Worker Alliance, and 
other members of SDS would not be eas- 
ily solved. The initial walk-out took place 
Friday night after a presentation by the 
Illinois Black Panther Party. The Pan- 
thers read a statement signed by them- 
selves and several other Third World 
revolutionary organizations condemning 
PLP's position on racism. PLP and 
WSA saw the black struggle as inseparable 
from the general class struggle of the 
Proletariat. PLP condemned national 
struggles as wrong because they divide 
the working class. 

Jeff Gordon. PLP, took over the plat- 
form, demanding the right to reply. His 
speech, like most others during the con- 
vention, was interupted by noisy chanting 
both in support and in condemnation of 
his words. A delegate moved for a re- 
cess, saying the atmosphere of the conven- 
tion was impossible for the discussion of 
racism. During debate on the motion Klon- 
sky seized the microphone and asked peo- 
ple to leave the floor and discuss whether 
non-PLP people should continue to work 
within the same organization with PLP. 
About one-third of the body left. PLP 

College Press Service 

and WSA resolved that there still is unity 
in SDS. Following that vote they replaced 
the chairman with a member of PLP. The 
two caucuses met separately Saturday in 
adjoining halls. PLP had workshops on 
racism while the second caucus, which had 
grown to a majority of the convention, 
discussed the principles which united its 
members but separated them from PLP. 

After dinner, a brief statement was ap- 
proved which said that SDS stood for the 
struggle of black liberation, self deter- 
mination, and the right to secession, if 
necessary, and for the struggles of na- 
tional liberation as exemplified by North 
Vietnam. SDS also supported the revo- 
lutionary socialism of Albania, Cuba 
China, North Korea, Black Panthers, and 
the League of Revolutionary Black Work- 
ers . The statement also emphasized the 
struggle against male supremacy and 
stressed PLP's anti-Communism, of which 
it disapproved. 

It concluded with a pronouncement that 
all those not in support of the principles 
are expelled. 

This caucus returned to the plenary, and 
Bernadine Dohrn explained PLP's ex- 
pulsion. She began to explain the role 
played by PLP in disrupting programs in 
support of the SDS principles. Although 
PLP had pledged not to interrupt Miss 
Dohrn, it conducted noisy floor demonstra- 
tions. Miss Dohrn stressed that PLP's 
tactics and position stressed "the man 
not the revolution." PLP is racist, anti- 
Communist, and reactionary, she said. 

Amid PLP chants, Miss Dohrn led the 
entire non-PLP caucus from the build- 
ing, as Jeff Gordon, PLP, announced that 
his faction had taken over the most rev- 

olutionary organization in the West. On 
Sunday, PLP, the "purified" SDS (reg- 
ulars), and independent caucuses all held 
separate meetings, although the inde- 
pendents later joined one of the two pri- 
mary groups. PLP did not consider it- 
self expelled, and meeting in the coli- 
seum with about 600 people, it elected 
John Pennington national secretary and in- 
sisted that it is the real SDS. 

Meeting at the Urban Training Center, 
two blocks from the national office, "pur- 
ified" SDS with about 1000 people de- 
cided that five principles of unity among 
themselves should be circulated to the 
membership through New Left Notes. 
These principles include: 

1.) opposition to white supremacy, full 
support to the national liberation struggle 
of the oppressed people against U. S. Im- 
perialism, support for the right of self 
determination for the black and Chicano 
peoples, and independence for Puerto Rico; 
2.) opposition to male supremacy and sup- 
port for the struggle for women's libera- 
tion; 3.) support for armed struggle- 
4.) exclusion of anti- communism, and 5.) 
support for the fight for socialism. 

Several outlines for national action were 
presented. SDS called for three days of 
demonstrations and actions in Chicago be- 
ginning Sept. 26 to coincide with the trial 
of the Conspiracy Eight, who are under 
federal indictment for crossing state lines 
to incite a riot at the Democratic Na- 
tional Convention last August. These dem- 
onstrations are planned to demand imme- 
diate military withdrawal from Vietnam 
and everywhere else in the world, support 
for GI rights and GI rebellion, support 
for black liberation, the freeing of Huey 

Newton and all political prisoners, inde- 
pendence for Puerto Rico, and an end to 
the surtax. The week of Nov. 3 was set 
for massive anti-war action unless the 
U. S . accepts the ten point peace plan 
of the National Liberation Front. 

SDS (the regulars) elected Mark Rudd, 
a leader of the 1968 Columbia occupa- 
tion, national secretary. Jeff Jones was 
elected Inter-Organizations Secretary and 
Bill Ayers education secretary. 

The three ran on a ticket which sees 
American blacks as a separate colonized 
nation and sees the struggle for black 
liberation as an essential part of the in- 
ternational proletariat revolution. They 
see the white proletariat in the U. S. as 
important to the struggle, but not key. 
They further view women's liberation 
mainly in the context of organizing women 
to participate in the full struggle for 
liberation of oppressed blacks and Latins 
in the U.S. and in the struggles for na- 
tionalism and socialism in Third World 

They emphasize the student movement 
as a focal point for fermenting revolu- 
tion for socialism. There is a caucus, 
Revolutionary Youth Movement, which dis- 
agrees with the emphasis on a student 
movement and instead believes organizing 
workers is essential to a strong on- going 
revolutionary movement. 

Now, PLP, "purified" SDS, and their 
splinter groups will return to their cam- 
puses to attempt to solidify membership. 
PLP is expected to challenge the reg- 
ulars particularly strongly on both coasts. 
However, the SDS now run by Rudd con- 
trols the national office with all member- 
ship records and a new printing press.

is concerned, the Russians have 
up to now proven themselves hard- 
headed, not about to throw a ruble 
where it is not needed. 

The decisions the United States 
makes on its space program may 
determine the future of the Un- 
ited States in the world.

these jobs.

Lederle's Commencement Address Told It Like It Is' 

(The following is the text of the 
commencement address by UMass 
President John W. Lederle. We 
are reprinting the speech, in wake 
of Dr. Lederle's recent announced 

Governor Sargent, Senator Ken- 
nedy, Reverend Kenseth, Distin- 
guished Guests, Trustees, Alumni, 
Candidates for Degrees, Parents 
and Friends: 

It is a great personal honor for 
me to welcome all of you to the 
99th Commencement of the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts. 

Last year at this event, I spoke 
of great changes at this Univer- 
sity, in American society as a 
whole, and in the world beyond 
our shores - changes which had 
occurred during the college years 
of the graduating class. 

Most of these same change s 
have been witnessed, of course, 
by the Class of 1969 with a "Year 
of the Moon" and new heads of 
government at state, national and 
foreign levels added for good mea- 

Long ago Heraclitus said: "No- 
thing is permanent except change." 
If true, then we in 1969 must face 
the fact that there are some new 
overtones. Only certain kinds of 
change are any longer tolerable. 

Today, we know that change must 
be relevant in a positive way to the 
larger issues of our time. We 
are told that there should be per- 
sonal involvement by every one of 
us in the transformation of soci- 

This is the message which 
sounds loud and clear through the 
clamor on the nation's campuses. 

Change, we hear, must be rel- 
evant specifically to a new kind of 
worldwide interracial brotherhood 
where this and future generations 
will be free from war and free 
from want. These twin objectives, 

of course, have been goals of Man 
for a millennium. But now, the 
issue is sharply drawn as never 

Chancre in 1969 calls for YOUR 
personal involvement and MINE 
through specific commitment to the 
betterment of man. As the "have" 
people of the world, we are now 
called upon to provide better than 
adequat e remedies of economic 
and social salvation for the 
"have nots," whether in Roxbury, 
in Harlem, or in Biafra. 

These goals are not only histor- 
ical, they are worthy. 

Set dead against every vision of 
early Utopia, however < is a stark 
and unavoidable reality. That 
simple reality is: what shall be 
the priority of governmental ex- 
penditure at both state and nat- 
ional levels today and for the 
1970's? For, where goes our 
public wealth, goes the commit- 
ment of Society. 

The youth of our nation have 
pinpointed sharply this Achilles 
heel in the body politic. 

At stake is the question of whe- 
ther this nation can any longer 
afford billions for wasteful mini- 
wars in the swamps of Asia; still 
more billions for unproven or 
soon-to-be scrapped weapons sys- 
tems, while federal dollars for 
higher education and for the up- 
lifting of the disadvantaged melt 
away before our eyes. This is a 
matter of priorities. 

At stake, too, is the question of 
whether Massachusetts, the home 
state of Horace Mann, with an 
annual budget approaching one and 
a half billion dollars, shall con- 
tinue to expend that purse on wel- 
fare at a level which puts us 
close to the top nationally in that 
area, while the share of tax dol- 
lars for public higher education of 
our youth rides sadly along in 
50th place, at rock bottom among 
all the states. 

This, too, is a matter of prior- 

For, however grateful we may be 
in Massachusetts for good levels 
of support in capital appropria- 
tions for higher education, the 
shortage of operating dollars has 
now brought us to a grave cri- 
sis. We hope and pray for an 
early resolution of the tax dil- 
emma in the Commonwealth. No 
state ever spent itself into bank- 
ruptcy paying for the education of 
its youth. 

No less than the future great- 
ness of our nation is at stake in 
these issues. 

Yet, in 1969, because of the rash 
actions of a small minority of stu- 
dents, higher education in Amer- 
ica is wearing a black eye. It's 
quite a "shiner", too! Further- 
more, it's going to hurt us for a 
while to come. 

But this, too, will change. And 
when reason replaces rumpus, then 
all of us: parents, students, states- 
men and taxpayers are certain to 
come upon a startling truth. 

That truth is: no problem in 
this world from the beginning of 
Man's history to the marvelous 
Odyssey of Apollo 10 has ever 
been solved; no step up the lad- 
der for civilization has ever beer 
taken EXCEPT through the broad- 
ening of the individual's vision and 
intellect; EXCEPT through more 
precise analysis and understanding 
of problems that grow thornier and 
ever more complex; EXCEPT 
through willingness to share the 
mind's illumination with fellow 
human beings; in brief, through 
education. In the 1960's, that 
means higher education. 

And so, another change must 
come. Priorities must realign. 
The shift must go from all out 
support of certain negatives in 
society to at least adequate sup- 

Law and Order Movement 
Has Congress Eying Campuses 

The law and order issues, which 
have been used as the keys to 
winning elections in the past few 
weeks, may begin to effect college 
campuses very soon. 

The first step toward passage 
of campus protest law was taken 
recently when the House voted 
83-15 to allow the National Aer- 
onautics and Space Administration 
(NASA) to withdraw research funds 
from any student or faculty mem- 
ber reported by his college to have 
joined in "disruptions" on cam- 

Before the vote was taken, 
Cong. Thomas F. Railsback (R- 
111.), who had secretly toured the 
nation's tense campuses last month 
spoke out against the legislature. 

Railsback told his colleagues, 
"... all the people with whom 
we met, moderates, liberals, and 
conservatives . . . indicated that 
if we enact repressive legisla- 
tion in this session of Congress 
then it will have the effect of 
driving the moderates, the well- 
intentioned, the people willing to 
work within the system, right over 
to the radical side." 

The vote is perhaps evidence 
of the feelings House members 
have regarding campus violence. 

Attempting to keep any legis- 
lation of this nature at a mini- 
mum, rather than a maximum, the 
Nixon Administration moved to 
stop a bil 1 submitted by Cong. 
Edith Green (D-Ore.). chairman ol 
the House sut- ommittee on edu- 

The bill, which was killed yes- 
terday contained a provision that 
the schools must file, within six- 
ty days after the bill passes, 
plans of action which "affirms 
the intention of the institution to 
take all appropriate actions," to, 
among other things, insure a cam- 
pus atmosphere free of violence 
and disruption." 

The bill, in short, gives the 
government power to cut all funds 
to the university that does not sub- 
mit a plan to stop campus dis- 

In addition to the action of the 
Nixon Administration on these 
bills, the President has issued two 
statements which help define his 

The first, presented on March 
22 speaks of the government's 
role. "The first thing to do at 
such moments is to reassert first 
principles. The Federal govern- 
ment cannot - should not - enforce 
such principles. That is funda- 
mentally the task and the respon- 
sibility of the university commun- 

The second statement, presen- 
ted June 3 at Gen. Beadle State 
College in S. Dakota, elaborates 
on this position. "We have the 
power to strike back if need be, 
and to prevail. The nation has 
survived other attempts at this. 
It has not been a lack of civil 
power, but a reluctance of a free 

society to employ it that so often 
has stayed the hand of authorities 
faced with confrontations." 

The President also stated that 
student and faculty members who 
spawn violent demonstrations are 
manifesting "self righteous moral 

However, any legislation of this 
nature that passes the House would 
only effect the 1.5 million stu- 
dents who receive Federal aid, 
leaving 7 million students unaf-

Amherst Grads Avoid 
Medicine and Business 

The Senior class at Amherst College is shying away from medicine 
and business careers, and student unrest may have something to do 
with it, according to a recent poll on future plans. A total of 283 stu- 
dents out of 291 (or 97 percent) returned questionnaires. 

Only 185, or 65.1 percent, of those young men plan to attend gradu- 
ate school next year. Last year, 89 percent indicated they planned 
to continue their education. 

The most startling figures were those on students choosing medicine 
or business as their careers; these were only half as many as last 
year. Twenty- five chose business (last year it was 44), and only 21 
picked medicine, whereas last year's figure was 42. 

"Uncertain" was checked by 35 graduates, substantially up from 
last year's 13. 

Several explanations have been offered for this phenomenon. Dean 
Henry Littlefield, career guidance counselor at Amherst, commented: 
"I'd tend to associate it with the draft. That's what the students have 
been discussing with me aU year long." Littlefield pointed to the rise 
in students checking education as their career choice, 84 this year 
compared to 69 last year. "Education usually means teaching and 
that's draft-deferable. I know an awful lot of students who are going 
to teach elementary school for a few years." 

Littlefield could not explain the huge decline in persons interested 
in medicine, since that is already draft-deferable. One source said, 
"I know at least six or seven boys who, instead of seeking a medical 
career, are planning to get advanced degrees in biology and other sub- 
jects closely akin to medicine but which cannot be tabulated as such." 

Another college official suggested, as a group, doctors are the 
highest paid professionals. I think a lot of boys want to protest that 
fact. I don't think this marks a new trend though. Next year medicine 
will probably be higher. 

The decline in Seniors hoping to go into medicine is all the more 
noteworthy because Amherst has traditionaUy produced many gradu- 
ates who have become doctors. 

Business has been declining steadily over the past decade although 
the drop this year stepped up the pace substantially. It is generally 
known that students today suspect the motives of businessmen and use 
business as a target for protest. 

One Dean summed Up the situation as follows: "When you have 12 
percent of your graduating class uncertain as to what they're going to 
do next year, that's significant. The people in 'uncertain' may well go 
into medicine or business later on when they see those professions 
aren't so bad. But right now, these boys are in trouble because 'un- 
certain' is not draft-deferable." 

Ford Foundation Grant Given to UMass'SisterGeorge"Now Playing 
To Allow Individual Student Research 

A ford Foundation-University of Massachusetts program will help a pioneering group of students to 
direct their own learning next year through a series of problem-solving research projects. 

Sixty students - 20 each from 
UMass, Federal City College in 
Washington. D.C., and the Univer- 
sity of South Carolina - will rec- 
eive full academic credit for in- 
terdisciplinary researc h projects 
of their own choosing aimed at the 
correction of U.S. social, economic 
and cultural problems. 

Another group of up to 80 stu- 
dents on each of the three cam- 
puses will be part of the project 
as assistants, and in other cap- 
acities. They will receive par- 
tial credit. 

A Ford Foundation grant of 
$95,000 administered by UMass 
wiU support the program. The 
grant will pay project directors and 
group leaders and will finance tra- 
vel, consultants and research ser- 


The program will be directed 
by Joseph Rhodes, president of the 
student body at the California In- 
stitute of Technology until his 
graduation this year. Rhodes was 
one of the leaders of a student- 
directed research program at Cal- 
Tech that attacked the Southern 
California air pollution problem. 

During the coming year he will 
be a part-time faculty member 
at the UMass School of Education 
and a Junior Fellow at Harvard 

"Essentially we are giving these 
students a chance to direct their 
own education for a year," said 
associate professor Robert Wood- 
bury of the UMass School of Edu- 
cation, who helped plan the pro- 

Amherst College Names 
28 Year Old Trustee 

Following in the wake of a num- 
ber of other "Commencement 
firsts," Amherst College has e- 
lected a 28-year old alumnus as 
one of its trustees. He is George 
Edward Peterson, Amherst '63, 
of Cambridge, Mass., and he will 
serve a six- year term as an alum- 
ni trustee. As Peterson rose for 
the audience with the other trus- 
tees, his youthful yet dignified 
appearance contrasted sharply 
with the convention 1 three piece 
suit, silver-hairec mage usually 
associated with coiiuge trustees. 

Peterson is one of eighteen Am- 
herst trustees, eleven of them life 
trustees whose terms are un- 

Although short on years, Mr. 
Peterson is apparently long on 
accomplishments: as an under- 
graduate, he was president of Phi 
Beta Kappa and a member of the 
track team. He was a Rhodes 
Scholar from Mass. in 1963-65 and 
earned a B.A. from Balliol Col- 
lege, Oxford, in 1965. In 1965- 
66, Peterson was an Educational 
Planning Advisor for the Ford 
Foundation. From 1966-68, he was

ject. "The program is dedicated 
to the idea that a university should 
not be a fixed place but should 
be decentralized and mobile." 

Student s will meet during the 
coming summer to select research 
areas. Poverty in the Appalach- 
ian South, city ghettos and in New 
England; problems of state and 
local tax reform; the university 
and the arts; and the social con- 
sequences of increased leisure 
are some initial proposals. 

"A frequent complaint of many 
university students is that their 
learning is severely circum- 
scribed by the formal curriculum 
and they have little opportunity 
to study problems more relevant 
to their own lives and inter- 
ests," said Marshall Robinson, 
Ford Foundation program officer 
in charge of higher education and 
research. "One answer to this 
complaint is the student-directed 
learning movement in which stu- 
dents undertake re search and study 
projects of their own choosing 
under the guidance of a faculty ad- 
visor or student director. This

with this concept on a larger 
scale than heretofore attempted

"The Killing of Sister George," 
the London and Broadway stage hit 
that created a sensation on both 
sides of the Atlantic, is now play- 
ing at the Campus Cinemas. This 
controversial drama of a love 
triangle involving three women, 
was produced and directed by Rob- 
ert Aldrich. Written by Lukas 
Heller, it is based on the play by 
Frank Marcus. 

Beryl Reid recreates the role 
of "Sister George" which won her 
universal acclaim and the Tony 
Award on Broadway for the Best 
Performance by an Actress in the 
1966-67 season. 

For London- born Susannah

Rumors Flying: PC's Mullaney 
To Become Lakers New Coach? 

Broad Comments 

Fans to Vote for All Stars; 
Is Joe Namath a Cry Baby? 


It's almost here. The All-star game that is. There's talk about 
letting the fans vote for the players to be duly honored on the team 
instead of the players themselves. Might not be a bad idea. It could 
stimulate some interest in the sport, which although the Mets have 
been setting attendance records, no one else seems to be getting the 
fans away from the televisions and beer on the weekends. It's not 
time to ring any death knells for baseball, but something should be 

done. Maybe installing air conditioning would be a good bet. 

^ ********** 

Reggie Jackson hit a home run the other night at RFK stadium in 
Washington. He wanted, he said, to be sure the President (Nixon, 
natch) knew who he was. Everyone knows who the President is, he 
claimed. Reggie proved his point. He received a letter from Nixon 
who attributed Reggie's success to the presence of Julie and David. 
It seems as if Reggie has hit two homers before when Julie and David 
were in the audience. Nixon suggested Reggie subsidize Julie and 
David to go to the games so he'd hit more homers, presumably. AU 
though the statement was most likely made in jest, it seems Nixon 
could have given Reggie a little credit. 

Boston's Fenway Park was the scene of a rassling match, as one 
sportswiter called it.. After having seen Killer Kowalski use his 
claw hold on an opponent, I've had an aversion to wrestling. Espec- 
ially Killer Kowalski. But a lot of wrestling fans in Boston don't share 
my aversion. Abe Ford moved in with "the greatest wrestling show 
ever presented." And it was. Bruno Sammartino literally made a 
pizza out of the Killer. Good for you, Bruno baby. Everyone is al- 
ways talking about building a stadium to house the Pats and Sox. 
But someone ought to give a little thought to the wrestling fans in the 
hub. They've outgrown the Garden and deserve better quarters than 
Fenway Park. 

How about the Mets winning the Pennant? Don't laugh because it's 
a possibility. Look at the way the pitching has straightened itself 
out Tom Seaver may actually be a 20-game winner. The addition 
of Donn Clendenon has helped the offense. They're still hanging in 
there with the Cubs, and it's almost the half way mark. People oohed 
and aahed when the Mets got off to a great start, but maybe know 
they're serious about it. The 
knows.. .maybe they will win. 

image, to say the least. 

********** ' 

Speaking of the Mets, Manager Gil Hodges received a suggestion 
from a fan. The fan suggested equipping the pitchers with elevated 

shoes to compensate for the lowered mound. 


How about all the temperamental players in prosports today? 
Called to mind are Ken Harrelson, Maury Wills, Richie Allen and, 
of course, Joe Namath. Namath is unofficially officially retired 
from the game. His sobbing news conference was something else 
again. I hate to see grown men bawling, and it seems as if sports 
has their share and then some. The only sports figure I can remem- 
ber . .incerely crying at his retirement was Bob Cousy. But he was 
leavii^; the game with honor and a fantastic reputation. You wanted 
to cry with him. Here was a man too old to give what he thought was 
his all to the game. You're heart went out to him. But Joe Namath? 
He had his cross on his shoulder and you almost expect someone to 
come iorth with the nails and one of the girls(?) who frequent his 
plact to come forth with a cloth to wipe his eyes and face. Too bad 
she didn't. Then we could have found out if Joe was mortal or immor- 
tal. ' 

While he was trying to ellicit sympathy from his fans because Roz- 
elle was giving him a raw deal did he ever stop to think about the kids 
vho worship him? They look up to him so he ought to think a little 
about bit image. An image not just as a flashy footbaU player with a 
clean cut all- American boy that you used to hear about. Then I suppose 
you get into the hassle about a player's private life off the field 
oeing his own time and he should be able to do what he wants. But 
when you're as well known as Joe Namath, you don't have a private 
life anymore. I used to be one who said what a personality did on 
his own time was his own business, but Namath has brought about a 
closer scrutinization of that theory. I guess in the end, I'm inclined 
to say just don't make any waves off the field, and ail will be well.

is evidence the Los Angeles Lak- 
ers of the National Basketball As- 
sociation planned to announce that 
Providence College coach Joe Mul- 
laney will be the new Lakers men- 
tor, the Los Angeles Times re- 
ported yesterday. 

The Lakers called a news con- 
ference today to make the announ- 
cement of a successor to Bill van 
Breda Kolff, who resigned at the 
end of the recently- completed sea- 
son. Van Breda Kolff signed on a 
few days later as coach of the De- 
troit Pistons. 

Times sports writer Dan Haf- 
ner said Mullaney parked his car 
at the Providence, R.I., airport 
Sunday in a lot reserved for trav- 
elers who plan to spend more than 
one day out of town. He report- 
edly had plane reservations to New 
York in the name of J. Mullani. 

Among others mentioned as top 
contenders were Atlanta Hawks 
player-coach Richie Guerin and 
George King of Purdue. However, 
Guerin's name was eliminated by 
observers when Laker General 
Manager Fred Schaus said the new 
coach would not come from the 
professional ranks. 

The new coach inherits three 
NBA All-Stars: Wilt Chamberlain, 
Jerry West and Elgin Baylor. 

The search for a new coach 
was conducted with much secrecy. 
Just one week ago, Schaus, a for- 
mer Laker coach himself, said five 
men were being considered. 

Mullaney reportedly became a 
candidate for the spot after Bob 
Boyd of the University of Southern 
California turned down the job.

one of the nation's 

In New York, Hafner reported, 
Mullani changed planes and flew 
to San Francisco. The Times 
said a check on J. Mullani 's tele- 
phone number proved it was the 
same as Mullaney's. 

Mrs. Mullaney told the news- 
paper that her husband would be out 
of town a few days and the Times 
quotes an unnamed source in Pro- 
vidence saying Mullaney agreed to 
a three-year contract for $40,000 

his peers as 
top collegiate defensive coaches. 
In 15 years of college coaching, 
Mullaney teams have won 298 and 
lost 100. After one year at Nor- 
wich University, Mullaney joined 
the coaching staff at Providence. 

In nine of those 14 years, the 
Friars were entered in either 
the NCAA or NIT tournaments. 
In 1961 and 1963, Providence won 
the NIT. The best Friar rec- 
ord during Mullaney's tenure was 
the 24-2 1964-65 season. 

Mullaney said in February he 
wasnf interested in coaching pro- 
fessionally. At that time he was 
rumored to be under considera- 
tion as coach of the Milwaukee 
Bucks of the NBA. 

"College coaches, no matter how 
successful, have not done so well 
in the pros," Mullaney said at the 
time. He added: "It would take 
an unusual setup for me to try it." 

Mullaney signed a seven-year 
contract at Providence in 1967.

Amherst College Mourns Athletic Dir. 

Ellsworth Elliot Richardson, 63, 
Amherst College's Director of 
Physical Education and Athletics 
since 196L died recently at the 
Cooley Dickinson Hospital in 
Northampton. Mr. Richardson un- 
derwent surgery earlier this 
spring for cancer, and at that 
time it was thought that he would 
recover. He returned to the hos- 
pital two weeks ago, however, for 
the same cause. 

Besides his administrative dut- 
ies, Professor Richardson was al- 
so Amherst's golf coach. In the 
past he had also served as coach 

of hockey 

and assisted in other 

A native of Littleton, New Hamp- 
shire, he graduated from Amherst 
in 1927, and remained there as 
Hitchcock Fellow in Physical Ed- 
ucation, and then as instructor in 
that field, receiving his Master's 
degree in 1932. From 1936 until 
his return to Amherst as an as- 
sistant professor in 1943, he was 
director of athletics at Beverly 
(Mass.) High School and at Suf- 
field Academy, Suffield, Conn. He 
became full professor in 1955. 

He is survived by his wife, the 
former Adaline Harrington of Lit- 
tleton, N. H., and two children, 
James H. Richardson of Green- 
wich, Conn., and Mrs. Maury Mc 
Keon of Simsbury, Conn. 

The funeral service will be a 
private family ceremony, and there 
will be a memorial service at Am- 
herst next fall. The Richardson 
family requests that persons wish- 
ing to send flowers do not do so 
at this time, but instead pay their 
tribute to Mr. Richardson at the 
memorial service. 

Sayers Fit for Chicago Bears' Play 

All- Pro halfback Gale Sayers 
of the Chicago Bears is com- 
pletely fit and ready for action, 
while all-time pro quarterback 
Johnny Unitas of the Baltimore 
Colts remains a question mark 
for the 1969 season, according to 
an article in the current issue of 
SPORT Magazine. 

Sayers, whose knee was torn 
up by a jarring tackle in the 
Bears' ninth game last Novem- 
ber, "could start the season to- 
morrow if he had to," according 
to Dr. Theodore A. Fox. the sur- 
geon who operated on Gale's leg 
and repaired the damage to the 
two torn ligaments and the rup- 
tured cartilage. 

"I've given the knee every test 
except contact," agrees Sayers, 
"and it's ready. I've been run- 
ning on it and cutting. I won't 
have any reservations about it when 
we start hitting," he concludes. 

For Unitas, it's a differert story, 
according to the SPORT Magazine 
report. The muscles torn in his 
passing arm have healed, but John- 
ny's arm is 36 years old. 

"There is pain in the elbow and 
it is not going to subside," admits 
Unitas. "But I've had pain in 
my elbow for the last eight or nine 
years, so that's not going to stop 
me. I can live with it." 

But other factors besides the 

torn muscles that sidelined Johnny 
for nearly all of last season com- 
plicate his comeback attempt. Fir- 
st, he still has tendonitis, and 
second, he has a bone condition - 
osteophytes, which prevents him 
from fully extending his arm. 

Finally, a tendon in his arm 
occasionally pops out of its groov- 
ing. "It happens maybe every 
eight or nine throws," says Un- 
itas. "It crosses over the bone 
and it pains. But it may go away 
as the arm gets stronger." 

It may, and everything else may 
improve but the odds are against 
it. "The hope is slim," concludes 
the SPORT article. 

The Lighter Side of Sports from Sport 

Frank Gifford. trying to con- 
sole Earl Morrall after the Colts' 
loss to Joe Namath and the Jets 
in the Super Bowl, is quoted in 
the current issue of SPORT Mag- 
azine as saying: 

"You shouldn't feel too badly, 
Earl. You're NFL Player of the 
Year. Fran Tarkenton is still 
trying to make all- city." 


After the St. Louis University 
basketball team lost its 15th game 
in 19 starts last season, assistant 

coach Randy Albrecht gave the 
editors of SPORT Magazine his 
panacea for his team's ills. 

"We don't need practice - we 
need group therapy," he said.

Senate Pres. Donahue Asks Dems. 
To Hold State Convention at UM 

One of the most ideal opportunities to meet a favorite candidate may develop here at the university, 
if the Massachusetts Democratic State Committee decides the democrats will come to Amherst for 
their 1970 convention. 

Senate Pres. Maurice A. Dona- 
hue suggested recently that the 
quadrennial party conclave be held 
next June on the UMass campus. 

If adopted by the Democratic 
State Committee, this would be the 
first time a state political con- 
vention has ever been held at the 
university, removed from the big- 
city atmosphere of Boston, Spring- 
field and Worcester. 

Donahue, a Democratic candi- 
date for governor urged in a let- 
ter to Gloucester Rep. David Har- 
rison, that "thoughtful consider- 
ation" be given to the university 
as "full exploration would reveal 
adequate facilities for all the re- 
quirements of our State conven- 

Donahue went on to suggest sev- 
eral advantages involved in the 
UMass proposal. 

Since regular classes have ter- 
minated by convention time, Dona- 
hue said several large facilities 
would be available for plenary 
sessions of the convention and 
could be readily adaptable for

ment of Dr. William C. Venman 
as Assistant Dean of Administra- 
tion. Venman has been assistant 
to the provost and director of the 
Summer Session since coming to 
UMass in 1962. 

Venman explained that his new 
job entails working on "special 
project s for the President in- 
cluding the development of a pro- 
gram for continuing education, the 
athletic council, and representing 
the President on the Massachusetts 
Board of Regional Community Col- 
leges, and continuing some of my 
functions in the Provost's office." 
In addition to serving as dir- 
ector of the UMass Summer Ses- 
sion, Venman is the former Pres- 
ident of the National Association 
of Summer Sessions. He serves 
as the University's Deputy to the 
Five College program involving 
Amherst, Smith, Mount Holyoke 
and Hampshire College and UMass. 
He has served on several plan- 
ning committees for the Univer- 
sity's Boston campus, including 
groups that studied the location of 
the school, its curriculum, staff, 
and library facilities. 

Before coming to UMass in 1962, 
Venman was a staff assistant at 
Grand Valley State College, and 
previously music director in the 
Muskegon, Michigan public sch- 
ools. He has played with sev- 
eral orchestras and concert bands, 
and is a former member of the 
Connecticut Symphony, the West 
shore (Michigan) Symphony, and 
the Plymouth (Michigan) Sym- 

He served with the Army Spe- 
cial Services and the Adjutant 
General Corps as a Sergeant, and 
was a member of the Seventh 
Army Symphony. 

Venman received his B. Mus. 
Ed. from Oberlin College in 1955. 
He received his M.A. from West- 
ern Michigan University in 1959, 
and his Ph.D. from the Univer- 
sity of Michigan in 1962. He is 
married, the father of four, and 
lives in Amherst. 

the delegates, guests, and media. 
Also considered advantageous 
was the lower costs that would be 
involved in using dormitories and 
cafeterias on the campus. 

Further, the Senate Democratic 
leader said the selection of the 
UMass campus would, "symbolize 
the close ties of the Democratic 
Party and the intellectual com- 
munity, particularly the young peo- 
ple of our state." 

This, he continued, would prove 
a "striking new image for a rec- 
ognized necessity of a strong alli- 
ance between the Democratic Par- 
ty, the academic community, and 

young people, as essential ele- 
ments in any effective political co- 

Periodically in the past, Demo- 
cratic delegates have sought to 
escape from Boston's political in- 
fluences. Until Donahue's sug- 
gestion, there appeared no other 
place to go. 

It is believed that very positive 
"behind the scenes" action is be- 
ing taken at the present time to 
make this proposal a reality in 

UMass Education Prof 
Has Many Problems with 

Landlord, Cops, and Court 

UMass faculty are far from being 
apathetic when it comes to per- 
sonal problems asdemonstrated by 
Prof. David C. Berliner and his 
wife last week. 

Both Berliner and his wife Lois 
were arrested by Amherst police 
last Thursday and charged with 
disturbing the peace when they 
allegedly crawled down under their 
car to prevent a sheriff's deputy 
from towing it away. 

The couple and their two child- 
ren live at 15 Bedford Court, in a 
three-bedroom apartment in Echo 
Hills town houses, a 110-unit lux- 
ury apartment development off 
Belchertown Road. Their rent is 
$245 a month. 

Berliner, a professor of psy- 
chology and education at the uni- 
versity, said his family was eat- 
ing supper about 6:30 Thursday 
night when a man knocked at the 

"The man said he was from the 
sheriff's department and that he 
had an attachment notice for our 
car because we owed the landlord 
$700 in damages to the apartment 

and for back rent." Berliner said. 

The landlord is William Aubin 
of Amherst. 

"Those charges were absolute 
lies. It was the first we ever 
heard of them. I looked out the 
window and they already had our 
ca r up on a tow truck." Ber- 
liner said. 

"Then the man from the sheriff's 
office said, 'We're taking your 
' car,' and I said, 'no you aren't' and 
he said 'Yes we are.' " 

"Then my wife and I ran outside 
and laid down under the car. We 
were just trying to keep them from 
taking our property." 

A small crowd gathered to see 
why the couple was lying under the 
car, according to Berliner. 

Amherst police were called and 
when they arrived Berliner and his 
wife "went limp" and had to be 
dragged away to the cruiser. They 
were taken to police headquarters 
and released a short time later. 

The tow truck took the Berliner 
car away and the car is still be- 
ing held pending further action.

Same Gives Green Light 
To Worcester Med School 

Gov. Francis W. Sargent de- 
cided last week to "go forward" 
with construction of the University 
of Massachusetts state medical 
school at Worcester, ending five 
months of doubt on the $124 mil- 
lion project. 

The decision by Sargent was 
based on an evaluation report by 
a team of out-of-state medical 
school officials. 

In essence, they reported that 
the commonwealth has gone too tar 
to pull back from the medical 
school project despite the soar- 
ing cost estimates. 

Sargent described his decision 
as the "most difficult" since be- 
coming governor. 

At that time, Sargent launched 
a review of the state medical 
school because, he said, he was 
"confronted by a project whose 
cost had jumped from $75 mill- 
ion to $124 million in the pre- 

vious two years alone." 

For this, Sargent was criticized, 
and even denounced, for seem- 
ingly moving to prevent the 20- 
year-old idea of a state medical 
school from becoming a reality. 

In his "go" letter to UMass 
trustees, Sargent deplored the cri- 
ticism he received for merely ask- 
ing for a review. 

"This commonwealth and the 
University of Massachusetts we 
seek to forge were inexcusably ill- 
served by the rancor and personal 
invective of officials whose con- 
tribution to this project has been 
more rhetoric than reason," said 
the governor. He did not identify 
the "officials." 

However, it was understood, the 
governor's reference was meant 
for UMass Pres. John W. Lederle 
and Lamar Soutter, dean of the 
medical school.

and the band played on 


Preservation Hall is a shabby store in New Orleans' 
French Quarter where 8 years ago a couple of young 
Philadelphians, Mr. and Mrs. Allan Jaffee, gathered togeth- 
er elderly musicians who could play Dixieland with author- 
ity but who had little or no chance to perform. They found 
an unexpected number of capable musicians who took turns 
playing each night. A dollar thrown into a hat would allow 
you to sit or stand for the performance. Capacity: 90. 

In 1967 the Stanford Summer Festival put the Preser- 
vation Hall band in a tent with a few hundred miscellaneous 
chairs and benches and hoped the old-time musicians would 
be appealing to some of the campus community. 

For the West Coast visit, the Jaffees assembled some of 
their best players - blind DeDe Pierce, cornet; his wife, 
Billie, piano; Cie Frazer, drums- Chester Zardis, bass; 
Narvin Kimball, banjo; Willie Humphrey, clarinet, and 
Jim Robinson, trombone. 

The result was beyond anything they had imagined. All 
six scheduled nights in the tent were sold out, as well as 
two hold-over performances in Dinkelspiel auditorium. And 
the crowd was by no means middle-aged. 

Last summer proved to be no less successful as Stanford 
again was forced to hold Preservation Hall over for two 

extra performances on a Sunday night. 

* * * 

"I had my doubts about the drawing power of Dixieland 
jazz," commented Terry Schwarz Tuesday evening as the 
Preservation Hall band left the stage at intermission. "And 
I must say I'm amazed at the turnout. The interest and 
enthusiasm exhibited by the young has perhaps surprised me 
the most." 

Schwarz, manager of the Fine Arts Council and director 
of the Summer Arts concert series, believes this perfor- 
mance could prove to be one of the highlights of the summer 

"It's unusual to see a standing ovation before an inter- 
mission," he said. "This group seems to have a warmth 
and a universal appeal which is hard to find." 

It took only one quick look around the audience to verify 
tnat statement. There were the young and the very young, 
the middle-aged, and the old. A youthful father was 
dancing next to the stage with his 4-year-old daughter, who 
appeared to be loving every minute of it. And there was a

Berliner said that today hehas re- 
quested a declaration of charges be 
filed by his landlord, William E. 
Aubin, to find out specifically what 
he has been charged with doing. 
"Aubin," added Berliner, "has 
been out to get me" ever since 
last May when Berliner and his 
wife helped organize residents of 
the apartments to sign a petition 
complaining about safety con- 
ditions at the apartment. They 
asked that certain alleged inade- 
quacies be corrected. 

Some 16 residents of the apart- 
ment complex signed the petition, 
which cited poor insulation, lack 
of lighting in the courtyard, lack of 
handrails on stairs, and complaints 
about air conditioning, Berliner 
said. The petition also asked that 
speed limits be posted oh roadways 
in the apartment area for the safe- 
ty of children. 

Berliner said he has registered 
letters of "proof that he has paid 
his rent regularly and that he would 
hold an open house in his apart-

is no damage.

Summer Senate Debuts 
Need More Senators 


The Summer Student Senate limped on Monday night, trying to 
fill its ranks before the summer reaches its mid-point. At its first 
meeting of the year, the Senate spent 55 minutes debating four mo- 
tions, all designed to fill the Senate as quickly as possible. 

With a minimum of debate, the following motions were passed: 

♦Hold elections for 9 commuter and 3 dorm seats Monday. Pa- 
pers are due Sunday, in each dorm's head of residence apartment, 
or, for commuters, in the Senate office in the Union. 

♦Remove the restrictions on graduate and undergraduate commuter 
seats -- this makes the remaining commuter seats open to both grad- 
uates and undergraduates. 

♦Make it necessary for commuters to receive at least five votes 
in order to win. 

♦Declare all four participants in last week's commuter election

contingent from the ABC programs 
Holyoke colleges, some of whom were diligently taking notes 
on the performance so they could write an essay for a home- 
work assignment. 

"Their appeal was more than that of a museum piece," 
said Schwarz yesterday. '"They were genuinely respected 
and appreciated as musicians and performers by young and 
old alike." 

The night was great for a concert, and the music was 
right for the open air. The audience frequently applauded 
during numbers as well as after them - usually in apprec- 
iation for an impressive improvised solo by one or another 
of the band. 

In the informal atmosphere of the Mall, they set toes 
tapping and hands clapping out the steady rhythms of early 
New Orleans jazz. 

Led by the vitality of blind DeDe Pierce on cornet and his 
wife Billie, on piano, the band's exuberance and musical 
excellence provided an evening of pure fun. Each musician 
and his instrument were as one: Willie Humphrey on 
clarinet; Jim Robinson, trombone; Cie Frazier, drums; 
Narvin Kimball banjo; and Chester Zarids, bass. Preser- 
vation Hall Founder-Manager Allan Jaffee joined in on tuba. 
In addition DeDe contributed some spirited Gombo-dialect 
songs, and Billie sang several great numbers a la Bessie 

Some students circulated through the crowd selling under- 
ground newspapers, some sat on the concrete Mall surface, 
and some passed out flowers to the audience and the per-

Preservation Hall appeared at Boston Symphony Hall in 
April. And next week, after a brief appearance in Phila- 
delphia, they're heading back to Stanford University for 
another two-week stand at the Stanford Festival of Arts. 
They'll be in the same tent again, and this year the seats are 
sold out in advance. 

Various rumors were circulating on campus before Tues- 
day's performance that this was Preservation Hall's last 
tour. This is far from true. 

One of the ABC youngsters, looking for material for his 
essay, asked Willie Humphrey, "How long have you played

Med School 

(Continued from Page 1) 

In his six-page letter to Joseph 
P. Healey, chairman of UMass 
board of trustees, Sargent quoted 
the cost estimate reservations of 
his evaluation team, adopting them 
as his own matter of concern. 

The team reported: 

"We recommend the construc- 
tion of the proposed University of 
Massachusetts Medical School. 

"However, we have grave re- 
servations about the school's esti- 
mated cost of $124 million. In 
particular, we are concerned with 
the recent escalation of $50 mil- 
lion in this estimate. 

"Therefore, we further recom- 
mend that the governor and trus- 
tees of the university take appro- 
priate steps to make certain that 
these escalated costs are justi- 

In this regard, Sargent urged 
the university trustees to "once 
again involve themselves in the 
financial structure of this proj- 

Pointedly, Sargent framed these 
two questions for the trustees to 

"Can the total capital invest- 
ment yet be cut below the esti- 
mated cost of $124 million without 
endangering the school? 

"What lessons can you as trus- 
tees and we as responsible pub- 
lic officials learn from this near 
financial disaster and how can a 
repetition be prevented?" 

Seen as a decisive factor in 
the evaluation teams' s recommen- 
dation was that $64 million al- 
ready had been committed to com- 
pletion of the state medical sch- 
ool - including $35 million in 
federal funds. 

Sargent's decision was hailed 
by Dr. Soutter as a "great day 
for Massachusetts --a real step 

With this latest in a decade of 
crises for the state medical school 
now passed, Dr. Soutter predicted

of other 

teach - 

The review ordered by Sargent 
had produced four alternatives to 
the state medical school plan as 
programmed for the Worcester 
site. These were to build the 
school without the teaching hos- 
pital, construct two-year regional 
medical schools, abandon the state 
school and provide financial aid 
to private medical schools, or just 
abandon the project. 

UMass President John W. Led- 
erle said that costs of the Uni- 
versity's medical school in 
Worcester are necessary to build- 
ing a first class facility, one that 
will both attract top faculty and 
turn out first rate doctors. Led- 
erle said that he knew of no way 
where significant cuts could be 
achieved in building the basic med- 
ical science building and teaching 
hospital. "There is nothing fancy 
or ornamental about the buildings," 
he said. 

He said that the escalation costs 
are in line with other increases in 
the cost of living, pointing out that 
he has learned the real impact of 
the increased cost of living while 
looking for a home for his family. 

As retiring president, Lederle 
will have to give up the university 
presidential home on the campus, 
one of the fringe benefits he was 
entitled to as head of UMass.

Forty Fellows to be Chosen 
For Robert Kennedy Fellowship 

A radiometer facility to study 
atmospheric signal losses in con- 
nection with deep space communi- 
cation has been presented to UMass 
electrical engineering department 
by the Electronics Research Cen- 
ter of the National Aeronautics and 
Space Agency (NASA). 

The $100,000 facility, located 
at the north edge of the UMass 
engineering complex, will be used 
to study atmospheric signal losses 
at the very high frequency of 35 
GHz (35,000,000,000 cycles per 
second). This frequency is one of 
several proposed for a high-data- 
rate communication link with deep 
space probes. 

"In this particular study, the 
sun will be used as a constant 
source of 35 GHz energy, with 
the signal from the sun reduced by 
such atmospheric interference as 
rain, fog, snow, clouds or high 
altitude moisture," according to 
Dr. G. Dale Sheckels. electrical 
engineering department head. 

King Council to 
Hold Open Meeting 

The Martin Luther King, Jr. 
Social Action Council will hold a 
combined open meeting/rap- in at 
noon, tomorrow, at the Southwest 
Mall. The program is designed 
to let the campus community know 
what the King Council and other 
groups are doing this summer, and 
to give each student a chance to 
tell others about their own con- 
cerns so they can get together 
with those who share them. 

There will be an open micro- 
phone in addition to prearranged 
speakers. Anyone interested is 
encouraged to use this opportun- 
ity to talk about what needs doing 
on campus, local, or national is- 

Planned speakers include Dan 
Weir, chairman of the New Eng- 
land University Christian Move- 
ment, who will talk about the draft 
and conscientious objection. Anna 
Singletary, King Council Secre- 
tary, will discuss Women's Lib- 
eration and the campus. A speak- 
er has been invited from the Un- 
ited Christian Foundation's Sum- 
mer Project for Social Change to 
talk about their work investiga- 
ting exhorbitant rental rates in 
Amherst. Gil Salk, Executive Sec- 
retary of the King Council, will 
speak about non-violence. The 
program will be moderated by Tony 
Teso, who will also talk about 
some of the present on- going King 
Council activities. 

There will be a literature table 
with leaflets outlining the aims 
and goals of the King Council, and 
membership sheets for those who 
want to work on present King Coun- 
cil programs, or who wish to start 
new programs. All interested or 
curious students, faculty, and ad- 
ministrators are encouraged to at-

through positioning controls and

closure beneath the antennae. 

Permanent day- long records are 
made on a strip chart recorder 
which can be compared to simil- 
ar records taken at an identical 
facility in the eastern part of the 
state. The result is a compar- 
ison of atmospheric loss data at 
two widely spaced locations. 

The facility is at the University 
as part of a continuing joint re- 
search effort by UMass and the 
NASA Electronics Research Cen- 
ter. Other studies already be- 
ing conducted under this joint ef- 
fort involve microwave interact- 
ion with ionized gasses and speech 
recognition and processing. 

A $100,000 radiometer facility to study atmospheric signal losses 
at very high frequency in connection with space communication has been 
given to UMass by the NASA Electronics Research Center. Standing 
before the facility at the north end of the Amherst campus, left to 
right: Louis Roberts, director of the NASA Optics and Microwave 
Research Laboratory; Dr. Samuel Seely, associate dean and coordin- 
ator of research for the UMass Graduate School; Dr. G. Dale Sheckels, 
head of the UMass electrical engineering department; and Dr. Kenneth 
G. Picha, dean of the UMass School of Engineering. The facility re- 
cords atmospheric signal losses at the very high frequency of 35 GHz, 
one of several frequencies proposed for a high-data- rate communi- 
cation link with deep space probes. 

Today, Mrs. Robert F. Kennedy, 
Julian Bond, and Senator Edward 
M. Kennedy joined in announcing 
the Robert F. Kennedy Fellow- 
ship Program, to begin in Sept- 
ember 1969. 

"This generation of young Am- 
ericans is determined to make life 
qualitatively different for the hun- 
gry, the poor, the disenfranchised, 
the oppressed. We are seeking 
forty of the most able, most con- 
cerned, most determined of these 
young people to help launch the 
Robert F. Kennedy Fellowship 
Program," said Senator Kennedy. 
He stressed that many of the 
Kennedy Fellows would work in 
projects with which Robert Ken- 
nedy was closely identified. Among 
these are the Bedford-Stuyvesant 
Restoration Cor Duration in Brook- 
lyn, poverty communities in Appal- 
achia, Cesar Chavez* United Farm 
Workers, and numerous Indian, 
Mexican - American, and civil 
rights community groups. 

The Fellowship Program will be 
administered by the Robert F. 
Kennedy Memorial, in Washing- 
ton, D.C., founded last October to 
embody Robert Kennedy's commit- 
ment to "passion and action in 
the service of the nation." Since 
that time, its staff has consulted 
with a broad range of commun- 
ity groups and interested citizens 
in order to develop the Fellow- 
ship Program. As a result, com- 
mitments are being developed to 
place Kennedy Fellows with a wide 
variety of community organiza- 
tions around the country. 

Forty Fellows will be chosen 
from applications now being ac- 
cepted at the RFK Memorial. The 
Kennedy Fellows, mostly young 
people in their twenties, will be 
emerging community leaders from 
poverty and minority groups, as 
well as young professionals - law- 
yers, business school graduates, 
planners, health and medical spec- 

B. J. Stiles, Director of the 
Fellowship Program, said that 
nominations and applications were 
welcomed from individuals, com- 
munity organizations, youth groups 
or any other agencies working 
with poverty and minority group 

"The Fellowship Program is an 
action project and is not intended 
to provide scholarship assistance 
for academic study," Stiles 
said. "Our priority is on prob- 
lem-solvers and those who have 
already demonstrated their de- 
termination to confront chronic so- 
cial problems." 

The Kennedy Fellows will serve 
in a variety of community organ- 
izations. Young people with tech- 
nical assistance skills will work on 
specific, practical problems in 
poverty and minority- group areas. 
"We are particularly looking for 
applicants with legal, economic de- 
velopment and medical or para- 
medical training and experience," 
Stiles said. "Kennedy Fellows 
coming from poverty and minority 
groups," he continued, "will be 
assigned to institutions of com- 
munity-wide power and will be 
given an opportunity to develop 
leader skills." 

Recipients of the Fellowship will 
begin their assignments in Sept- 
ember, 1969. They will hold the 
Fellowship for one year and will 
receive a subsistence stipend av- 
eraging approximately $350 a mon- 

Announcement of the forty re- 
cipients will be made in August.

It's Your $12 

Why Not Run 
For Summer Senate 

The Summer Senate met for the first time this week and spent the 
entire meeting deciding how it could fill its ranks. The Senate has yet 
to pass any motion other than ones concerning Senate elections. 

While the summer is still not quite half over, about a third of the 
students now taking classes will go home next week. They, like all 
other summer students, paid a $12 activities fee at the beginning of 
the summer. Since the Senate ha s done exactly nothing to date, that 
tax amounts to nothing more than $12 thrown away for them. 

It is time the Student Senate did something to justify its existance 
this summer. But before anything can be done, people must run for 
the remaining 12 seats. If you don't want your $12 contribution to sum- 
mer activities to be completely wasted, find your Senator and tell him 
to do something. If you don't have a Senator, run.

A New Image 

(Reprinted from Boston Herald Traveler) 

The University of Massachusetts at Amherst will be the first edu- 
cational institution in the country to run the risk of importing a riot. 
if next year's Democratic state convention is held there. 

Senate President Maurice A. Donahue, who has proposed that the con- 
vention be held in Amherst, says the academic site would give the 
Democratic party a "striking new image." 

What the Democrats would do to the state university's image Don- 
ahue did not say. On the basis of past performances, however, the 
Democrats could turn the UMass campus into a second Berkeley with- 
out overexerting themselves. 

Sen. Donahue, who is a candidate for the Democratic nomination for 
governor, contended that the university site would "symbolize the 
close ties of the Democratic party and the intellectual community, 
particularly the young people of our state/' 

It also would symbolize a strategic victory for Donahue over his 
rival contenders for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination. Mayor 
Kevin White, former Lt. Gov. Frank Bellotti and Kenny O'Donnell. 

White and O'Donnell live in Boston and Bellotti lives in Quincy. 
Donahue lives in Holyoke, which is almost next door to the UMass 
Amherst campus. 

Sen. Donahue's assumption that the university officials would be glad 
to welcome the Democrats to Amherst probably is right, because he is 
the University's No. 1 booster in the Legislature. 

But the University officials had better make sure that all their 
students have gone home before the Democratic delegates arrive on 
campus. If they don't, the students will learn things that aren't taught 
in their political science classes, including possibly new ways to 
start a riot. 

The Republicans, • who have already signed up the War Memorial 
Auditorium in Boston for their 1970 state convention, open their meet- 
ings with an organ recital. With rare exceptions, this is the most ex- 
citing event of the convention. 

The Democrats, however, consider themselves lucky if they can get 
through their state convention without the help of the local police de- 
partment's riot squad.

Nixon's Plans for VietWithdrawal 
Criticized by Saigon Legislators 

The prevailing mood at Democratic state conventions is indicated by 
an unscheduled feature at the 1958 assembly in old Mechanics Building. 

Not long after the convention was called to order, a wild fist fight 
erupted on the platform. This incident was dismissed with an unofficial 
announcement that "somebody fainted," as half a dozen policemen 
dragged the combatants off stage. 

It was no surprise to veterans of these Democratic gatherings ^ban 
the 1958 convention collapsed in complete chaos, after a 16-1/2 wur 
marathon meeting, when screaming delegates prevented the calling of a 
fourth ballot in a furious fight tor the attorney general endorsement. 

The late John F. (Iron Duke) Thompson, speaker of the House of 
Representatives, who was presiding, recessed the convention lor a week 
after one delegate shrieked at him: *'Do something, even if it's wrong!" 

The Democrats concluded their business a week later at the Hotel 
Bradford, with a squad of brawny Boston policemen lining the walls of 
the ballroom where the proceedings were held. 

The delegates apparently were worn out by that time, however, be- 
cause one policeman reportedly was overheard saying to a colleague: 
"is this a Democratic convention? They look like Republicans to me." 

The University of Massachusetts campus in Amherst could have a 
similar soothing effect on the Democrats, if they hold their 1970 con- 
vention there. But the university officials should exercise caution and 
make certain there aren't any students around to pick up tips on how to 
start a riot.

SAIGON Vietnam - (CPS) - 
Many U. S. military analysts here 
think President Nixon's intention 
to withdraw 100,000 American 
troops from Vietnam by the end 
of the year is just wishful think- 

Mr. Nixon made his intentions 
known during his June 19 Wash- 
ington news conference when he 
commented on a report by former 
Secretary of Defense Clark Clif- 
ford in "Foreign Affairs" mag- 
azine. The Clifford report said 
the U.S. should withdraw about 
100,000 of its troops from Viet- 
nam by the end of the year and 
that all of its ground combat for- 
ces should be removed by the end 
of 1970. Nixon commented, "I 
would hope that we could beat Mr. 
Clifford's timetable." 

The word "hope" may be the 
President's only saving factor. 
Most U.S. military analysts in 
Saigon think the President spoke 
too soon — and too optimistically. 
They doubt that it is politically - 
or even physicaUy - possible to 
withdraw nearly 20 per cent of 
our 500,000 (and more) forces in 
less than a half year. 

As Gen. Ralph E. Haines, Jr., 
U.S. Army commander for all 
Pacific forces, has noted, if Nix- 
on ordered a complete withdrawal 
of all U.S troops today, it would 
take at least nine months - with 
all available air and sea trans- 
port - to complete the removal. 

And since Nixon presumably 
plans to vigorously pursue the 
war effort with the remaining 
troops during the next six months, 
it is unlikely that the military can 

College Press Service 

spare the necessary transport to 
remove even 100,000 troops. But 
the political drawbacks may be 
even more stifling. 

Nixon's statements have made 
many South Vietnamese legislators 
edgy. They are unhappy with Pres- 
ident Nguyen Van Thieu and think 
that he conceeded to Nixon's plan- 
ned withdrawal of 25.000 American 
troops too easily at their recent 
Midway Islands conference. They 
feel Thieu should have gotten a 
pledge from Nixon that no more 
large American withdrawals would 
take place in the near future. 

In heated legislative debate here 
last week, Pham Duy Tue, a re- 
spected, northern- born delegate to 
the House of Representatives, 
blasted Thieu for his concession 
to Nixon and said the planned 
withdrawal is "only a tactic to 
please American public opinion. 
With the existing strength of the 
allies we have not defeated the en- 
emy, so troop replacements will 
not bring us victory." 

The harsh criticism by Saigon 
legislators has put Thieu in a 
precarious position. He knows 
that if he allows Nixon to an- 
nounce further and larger with- 
drawals his own political future 
will be in jeopardy. Therefore, 
it is probable that Thieu will, 
in the next few months, pressure 
Nixon in an attempt to stifle the 
President's intention to announce 
further large withdrawals. The 
result of this pressure could be a 
showdown between the govern- 
ments of Thieu and Nixon. 

Other allied nations in South 
Vietnam are also contemplating 
withdrawing forces. The Repub- 
lic of Phillipines is expected to 
start withdrawing troops if more 
American withdrawals are an- 
nounced. The Australian Gov- 
ernment of Prime Minister John 
Gorton, long under fire for its 
Vietnam involvement, may be for- 
ced to announce a token with- 

And South Vietnam's neighbor, 
Thailand, with a population (30 
million) nearly twice that of South 
Vietnam, has still only contributed 
2,500 troops to the war effort- - 
with no sign that it will send more 
when American withdrawals begin. 

Meanwhile it has been learned 
that many of the 25,000 American 
troops which are to be withdrawn 
(or "redeployed," as military sp- 
okesmen say) from South Vietnam 
starting July 8, are soldiers who 
had less than two months of duty 
Vietnam remaining anyway. U.S. 
Army spokesmen have stated 
repeatedly that newly arriving 
troops in South Vietnam can expect 
no chance for an early trip back 
to the United States. 

Intelligence reports have shown 
that the Viet Cong plan to con- 
tinue shelling departing troops 
right up until the moment they 
leave Vietnam. The reports show 
that once most of the 9th In- 
fantry Division troops have de- 
parted, the Vietcong plan to step- 
up shellings of remaining troops 
to decrease their morale.

A Persona/ Decision to Resign 


(The following is an interview which Dr. 
Tippo had with Katie S. Gillmore of Al- 
umnus Magazine.) 

Alumnus: The primary question, of 
course , is: "Why have you resigned?" 

Dr. Tippo: I have been her e five 
years and it seemed like a good time to 
take stock. We have had four bad bud- 
gets in four years. Next year, it looks 
as though we are going to have a bud- 
get which is even worse, a real disas- 
ter. I just came to the personal decis- 
ion that I didn't care to be an adminis- 
trator in an institution where you don't 
have the money to do the things you should 
be doing in education. I don't want to sit 
here all day long and say "No" to every- 
body who comes in. The deans and pro- 
fessors have good plans for the future, for 
improving departments and courses, but I 
am forced to say "No" because we don't 
have the money. 

I feel we have reached a kind of impasse. 
Apparently, we are not able to persuade 
the Legislature and the people of this 
state that we need additional support. I 
think that under those circumstances we 
ought to bring in other people, at least in 
my position. Perhaps new people can pre- 
present our needs in a new light and thus 
be more effective. 

I have decided that I would prefer to return 
to teaching either here or at some other 
university. I plan to offer a course for 
undergraduates on the nature of the uni- 
versity. I'd like to give a second course 
in university teaching, and along with that, 
develop some plans for the training of teach- 
ing assistants. I did this for ten years at 
the University of Illinois, and they were the 
happiest years of my life. 

By the way, I want to emphasize that I 
am not bitter or angry. I haven't had a 
fight with anyone. My relations with the 
President and the Board of Trustees are 
good. This is just a personal decision. 
It seems pointless to be an administrator 
if you don't have the tools to work with. 

Some people have interpreted my resig- 
nation as a threat or a scheme to bludgeon 
the Legislature into restoring monies cut 
from the budget. This is not true. I came 
to a personal decision after appraising the 
situation and then presented my resigna- 
tion to the President. Later, I was asked 
by the President and the Board of Trus- 
tees what it would take to cause me to re- 
consider. I replied that the restoration 
of the cuts which the Governor had made in 
the budge', would have to be a prerequisite 
for any reconsideration. After all, the 
drastic cuts led me to the resignation in 
the first place. The Governor had cut the 
budget by $10 million. I said, after care- 
ful consideration of the financial situation, 
that if we could restore $5 million of th€ 
$10 million cut-back, I would reconsider. 

Alumnus: If the support situation contin- 
ues to deteriorate, what sort of school 
could the University of Massachusetts be- 

Dr. Tippo: First let me make one thing 
clear. I don't mean to imply that we have 
gotten uniformly poor support. There are a 
couple of areas where we are doing fair- 
ly well. One is in the area of faculty 
positions and faculty salaries. We add 
1500 students a year, and the state recog- 
nizes a fifteen to one ratio. Consequently, 
we add one hundred new teaching positions 
each year. And by and large, faculty sal- 
aries are competitive. In addition, we have 
done fairly well as far as new buildings are 

Where we are really hurting is in the 
support staff and support budget. We don't 
get the clerks, the secretaries, the tech- 
nicians, the librarians, the administrative 
assistants, the plumbers, the electricians, 
and so on. Somehow the people of the 
state have the impression that if you have 
a teacher and you have a classroom, that's 
all you need. But in a university you need 
much more. Each year we put in re- 
quests for the essential support positions but 
we get very few of them. As time goes on, 
we build up a sizable deficit of needs. This 
is also true of our support budgets, such as 
money for educational supplies, art ma- 
terials, chemicals and equipment for the 
laboratories, library books, and so on. 

We are really diluting the quality of ed- 
ucation because we don't have adequate funds 
in these two areas. And we will have to 
face the fact that we can no longer accom- 
modate an additional 1500 students with this 
kind of inadequate support. Making-do as 
we are now isn't fair to the students who are 
already here. We have something like 20,000 
applicants for 3000 positions in the freshman 
class. It would be very unfortunate to have 
to turn away even more good students than 
we are forced to now, but we may have no 
choice after this year. 

Alumnus: What would you say was our 
responsibility as the only public university 
in the state? 

Dr. Tippo: It is quite clear that more 
and more students are going to be clamor- 
ing to come to college. One of the respon- 
sibilities of the University is to take its 
fair share of these students, although the 
bulk of this increase has got to be assumed 
by the community and the state colleges. 
If we add 1500 students each year until 
1980, we will have some 30,000 students on 
this campus. Even so, we will have a 
smaller proportion of the college- age popu- 
lation here in 1980 than we do at the present 

Under the Willis- Harrington Act, the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts is charged with 
being THE comprehensive state university. 

We are the only state institution in Massa- 
chusetts which is permitted to give the doc- 
torate degree (with the exception of the Ph.D. 
in chemistry and physics at Lowell Tech.). 
Obviously, we must offer the doctorate in 
many learned disciplines. In addition, as is 
true in all universities, there is tne general 
charge that we must improve the quality 
of the education which we offer on all levels. 
There is also considerable pressure for us 
to enter new fields, such as law. We should 
have had a law school thirty years ago. And 
we are under pressure to offer programs in 
architecture, library science and social 

Alumnus: What would you say about the 
academic achievements of the University 
during your tenure as Provost? 

Dr. Tippo: I want to make it very clear 
that I am not claiming credit for what we 
have achieved. In any university of this 
size and complexity, there are dozens and 
dozens of people who are responsible for 
what is accomplished. 

I would certainly consider the addition of 
outstanding faculty as one of the forward 
steps. People like Marshall Stone in math- 
ematics, formerly head of the math depart- 
ments at Harvard and Chicago, and now in 
a named chair here, and Charles Page in 
sociology, a truly outstanding sociologist 
and the former provost at Adlai Stevenson 
College, the University of California at 
Santa Cruz. In general, our recruiting ef- 
forts have brought outstanding people, at the 
junior as well as the senior level. I should 
point out that we probably do 85 to 90 per 
cent of our recruiting at the assistant pro- 
fessor level. 

Another area of accomplishment is the 
development of the library. In the first 
place, there was the drive to obtain the $17 
million building now under construction, 
which will house 2-1/2 million volumes. 
I am sure that this will be considered one 
of the great steps in the history of this 
institution. Also, we have done everything 
possible to augment the book acquisition 
budget. We were spending about $200,000 
for books several years ago, but now we are 
spending about a million dollars annually. 
The library is still very small, very in- 
adequate for a university of this size. We 
have somewhere between 600,000 and 
700,000 books but we ought to have a mil- 
lion volumes, a goal we hope to reach by 
1970 or soon thereafter. I feel confident 
that we will eventually have a great li- 

Alumnus: What ways can UMass grow 

Dr. Tippo: I would hope that the Uni- 
versity would continue to improve its de- 
partments and its schools. But we had 
better do a lot more in the area of curric- 
ulum. To use the cliche of the day: we 
need relevance. We need to make courses 
relevant to present day society. And we 
have to face the issue of the so-called Uni- 
versity core requirements. They sadly 
need revision. I think our requirements 
are much too rigid; they must be liberalized. 

Alumnus: About the undergraduates, do 
you feel they are reaUy different than 
they were when you were a student, or are 
there just more of them? 

Dr. Tippo: Well, there are certainly 
more of them; there is no denying that. 
Being a biologist, I am rather skeptical of 
the view that there is a great improvement 
in human beings over a period of time, 
especially a short period of time. Even 
though it has been forty years since my 
undergraduate years, I don't think students 
have changed very much. On the other 
hand, some of our faculty think that our 
students are brighter now, maybe because 
they get a better high school education. Ob- 
viously, they are more carefully selected 
because of the severe competition for ad- 

Students today are certainly more out- 
spoken and more self-confident. I would 
have been frightened to death to meet with 
the President when I was an undergraduate 
to discuss various university policies. But 
today students come in and converse with 
us on an equal footing, and they do a very 
good^ job. I am tremendously impressed 
with our students, with their ability and ded- 
ication. We have all learned a lot from 
them. They represent the future and they 
can tell us much we ought to know. I hope 
they will bring about some reforms here. 

I'd just like to say a word in conclusion 
about what lies ahead. This is a good uni- 
versity. It could be one of the great state 
universities in the country. But it is going 
to require a lot of effort on the part of 
many people to make it great. The alumni 
can do a good deal by learning about the 
University, being interested in the Univer- 
sity, and working with the Legislature and 
their local representatives. We must per- 
suade members of the Legislature that this 
university is important and that it is worthy 
of their support. But we must get organized. 
We must get the students, the parents, the 
alumni, the outstanding citizens, interested 
in this institution. 

Summer Action Program Resumes at Amherst and Smith 

The Amherst Summer Action 
Programs (ASAP), conceived last 
fall by the students, faculty and 
administration of Amherst College 
have recently gotten under way on 
both the Amherst and Smith Col- 
lege campuses. ASAP is the for- 
mal name for three programs, A 
Better Chance (ABC), Smith-Am- 
herst Tutorial Program (SATP), 
and the English Teachers' Instit- 
ute (ETI)7aesigned to upgrade the 
education of disadvantaged teach- 
ers and students. While SATP 
and ETI will work with students 
from the Springfield area schools, 
ABC wiU bring more than 70 stu- 
dents from all over the United 
States to the Amherst campus. 

The purpose of SATP is to as- 
sist 74 students who are not nec- 
essarily college bound. Dropouts, 
flunkouts and underachievers who 
are willing to overcome their de- 
ficiencies and take on responsib- 
ilities fall Into this category. SATP 
also includes a 25- student "Bridge 
Program" which prepares stu- 
dents entering area colleges in the 
fall. SATP began on June 23 and 
will run to August 1. Half of SATP's 
students, all girls, are staying at 
Smith and the boys are residing 
in two fraternity houses on the Am- 
herst campus. 

Calvin P. Ward. Amherst *70 

and J. Tracy Mehr, Assistant Pro- 
fessor of Physical Education a< 
Amherst, are the bead tutor and 
director of the program, respec- 
tively. They have set up the 
following schedule for SATP stu- 
dents: classes from 9-12 a.m., 
tutorials from 1 - 2:30 p.m., spe- 
cial projects from 2:30 - 4:00 p.m. 
and sport s from 4:00 - 6:00 p.m. 
After dinner, there is a Black 
History course which is given four 
nights a week. 

The only formal course given 
in SATP is English, but the teach- 
ers have attempted to get away 
from the practices of the trad- 

itional English class. Grammar 
will receive only minor emphasis, 
whereas black poetry and fiction 
wiU form the major portion of the 
classes. "Black Voices," an an- 
thology of black works, edited by 
Abraham Chapman, will be the 
source book. 

Because of their unique focus, 
SATP classes will depend heavily 
on student participation. Other 
elective courses offered in the 
program are: Algebra I and II, 
Geometry, Business Mathematics, 
Spanish. French, Physics and 

Sports have been introduced into 
SATP not only for recreational 
purposes but educational ones as 
well. It is hoped that many of the 
sports the students experience at 
Amherst and Smith are ones that 
they would not ordinarily have the 
opportunity to participate in. 

The ABC program began June 
28 and will end August 10. In 
ABC, there will be 73 underpri- 
vileged 9th, 10th and 11th grad- 
ers selected by the Independent 
Schools Talent Search Program.

Mullaney to Coach 'The Stilt' 

Sports Editor 

Joe Mullaney's move from the 
ranks of the amateurs to the pro- 
fessionals is still the topic of 
the day. The move is not unpre- 
cedented by any means. Take Bob 
Cousy who went from the Scream- 
ing BC Eagles to the Royals. It's 
not so much that Mullaney will 
be coaching the Los Angeles Lak- 
ers as it is he will be coaching 
Wilt Chamberlain. Hopefully, coa- 
ching Wilt Chamberlain would be 
more like it. 

The question he was most fre- 
quently asked is: How does he 
plan to handle Chamberlain? And 
no wonder. It's not unknown that 
BiU Van Breda Kolff, the ex-Lak- 
ers coach, and the wonder star 
couldn't get along. They were 
about as warm to each other as 
Bob Skiner and Richie Allen have 
been to each other of late. 

While coaching the Providence 
College Friars, Mullaney compiled 
the third best collegiate record 
in the country. But college hoop 
players aren't made of the same 
stuff the pros are. 

Mullaney is also well-known for 
his reasonableness as a coach. 
He's really going to need both of 
these assets in the next three 
years, if he lasts that long. Re- 
member last summer when Van 
Breda Kolff was saying he didn't 
think he'd have any problems he 
couldn't handle with Chamberlain. 
And now Mullaney is the coach. 

• * * * ♦ 
Do you know who the Manager of 
the Year is going to be? Not 
that it's definite or anything, but 
it seems Ted Williams is number 
one consideration for the honor. 
Williams has done wonders with the 
Washington Senators. Not that 
they're winning the pennant or any- 
thing, but they at least look like 
a baseball team these days. Al- 
though some teams and fans would 
be insulted if theirs had a 41-39 
mark at the half way mark, the 
Senators' fans are jubilant. After 
what they've been through the last 
three decades, it's no wonder. 

Williams has shown remarkable 
ability as a manager. At times 
when he was playing for the Red 
Sox, he was booed and hissed by 
the crowds and even threw his 
bat into the stands and fractured 
his housekeeper' s jaw. He was the 
darling of the Boston fans last 

weekend as he stepped up to re- 
ceive his award for being named to 
the all-star Red Sox team. He 
even tipped his cap to the crowd, 
something he had always staunchly 
refused to do. 

♦ * * * * 

While we're revelling in the Sox 
of days gone by, we might as well 
turn to this year's team. Williams, 
a la summer camp, pulled a bed 
check on his boys. And, wonder of 
wonders, netted himself two empty 
beds. He accepted the excuses of 
his two-wayward players and didn't 
fine them. Not so in the future, 
he vows. From now on, no excus- 
es. Just pay up the $500 fine and 
be in bed the next time. 

Just to prove all he's been say- 
ing, Williams benched Tony Con- 
igliaro during the Tiger stance. 
Taking a very offensive slap at 
Tony, Williams said he was being 
benched for defensive reasons. 
The defensive reason being the 
ball Tony misplayed because he 
lost it in the sun. To add in- 
sult to injury, Williams said if 
Tony did play in the first game, 
he'd bench him near the end of the 
game for defensive purposes. Not 
to make Williams the total villian, 
the ball cost the Red Sox a game 
against the Senators. 

Maybe Williams was right. But 
you wonder sometimes if maybe a 
manager shouldn't keep things like 
mis between him and the team. 
There's been a lot of talk about 
flagging morale on the team and 
some players not getting along with 
others, but having something like 
this plastered in the papers isn't 
going to improve anybody's 

Williams came out with a clas- 
sic statement after losing a 5-0 
game against the Senators at Fen- 
way Park. He said, "They're ov- 
ertrying. They're putting out if 
for no other reason than person- 
al pride." Well, if I felt that 
way about my team, I'd try to do 
something about it. A good place 
to start is for Williams to look 
in his own backyard. 

MILFORD - This town's reputa- 
tion for producing outstanding 
baseball players has again been 
enhanced. The two young men who 
have most recently added to Mil- 
ford's baseball fame were Tony 
Chinappi and Lou Colabello who 
were members of the University 
of Massachusetts team that fin- 
ished fifth in the College World 

Co-captain and catcher Chinappi 
finished his college career by us- 
ing his considerable baseball ex- 
perience and leadership qualities 
to guide UMass to the District 
I championship, giving the Redmen 
a berth in the CWS competition for 
the first time in 15 years. 

Colabello, a sophomore hopes to 
use the experience and confidence 
gained during the series as a step- 
ping stone to a collegiate world 
championship. He pitched four 
games during the regular season 
and one in Omaha and will prob- 
ably be UMass's ace next year. 

Although Chinappi is a veteran 
of the Milford High and Power's 
Post American Legion teams and 
played in several of the AAABA 
tournaments held annually in John- 
stown, Pa., Chinappi said he was 
never as scared as he was before 
UMass' first-round contest with 
Southern Illinois University, then 
ranked No. 1 in the country with 
a 37-7 record. But, as he ex- 
plained, once the teams were on 
the field the Redmen forgot about 
records and played to win. UMass 
"started to do things right" as 
soon as they went to bat in the 
first inning and went on to up- 
set USI, 2-0. After this victory 
the aura that surrounded such per- 
ennial powerhouses as Arizona 
State. UCLA, and Tulsa wore off; 
now when the Bay Staters told 
themselves they were as good as 
any other team in the series, 
they believed it. 

most of the boys had never played 
in such a large stadium for so 
many people before. This extra 
source of nervousness, however, 
was balanced by the fact that UMass 
was now the underdog. 

During the district playoffs the 
Redmen were billed as the best 
team in New England and were 
under pressure to fight off an 
upset from Boston University. In- 
cidently, BU's ace pitcher, Joe 
Lasorsa, is also a Milford prod- 

Chinappi noted that with the ex- 
ception of NYU, the other teams in 
the tourney had played consider- 
ably more games than UMass. Ar- 
izona State University, which 
finally won the series had played 
an unbelievable 57 regular sea- 
son games. 

Most of the other teams played 
37 games while the men from Am- 
herst had only 26 regular games. 
An exceptionally well-drilled de- 
fense was one of the benefits of 
this longer season that was evi- 
dent in Omaha. 

Nevertheless, the Redmen were 
not outdone. Chinappi said this 
year's UMass team was the most 
friendly and cohesive of the many 
he has played on. 'Everyone knew 
his job and did it. Even the guys 
coming off the bench came through 
for us," he said. Co-captain Chi- 
nappi stated that the team had set 
three main objectives for itself 
before the season began namely 
being champs of the Yankee Con- 
ference (made up of the six state 
universities in New England), win- 
ning the District 1 (New England) 
title, and going to the World Ser- 
ies. With the help of Chinappi's 
strong guiding hand, the young 
ball club achieved all these ob- 

Crowds of over 5,000 came to The veteran catcher concluded 
Omaha's Rosenblatt Stadium to that one of the most valuable as- 
watch games. Chinappi said that pects of such a tournament is that

Pats to Invade UMass Tomorrow 

The market is down. Auto- 
more scarce and expensive 

Newspapers tell the story every day. 
graphs [ football players are getting 
every day. 

George Sauer, general manager of the Patriots, is not worried 
"I've been with a few clubs," Sauer 
said yesterday. "Our situation is 
the same as it has been with all 
the other teams. We'll sign most 
of our veterans in training camp.' 

Training camp begins Thursday 
night at 6 o'clock at the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts in Amherst. 
Sauer will be in charge of col- 
lecting the veterans' autographs. 

He doesn't expect problems. 

"No, I don't expect there'll be 
many cuts in salary," he said. 
"You hardly ever cut a guy. But 
no, raises will not be plentiful." 

The entire Pats operation -- 
rookies, veterans and free a- 
gents -- will report to the Brett 
House at UMass on Thursday. The 
closed meeting at 6 p.m. will be 
the official start of the camp. 

Friday will be an informal pic- 
ture-taking day, with classes and 
physicals. Saturday will be a 
repeat, with organized workouts 
beginning on Sunday, the first day 
the American Football League al- 
lows organized practice.

"it gives a person a chance to 
learn exactly what he can and can- 
not do." Chinappi has decided 
against entering the major leagues. 
His powerful throwing arm was 
injured while he was playing foot- 
ball at Brigton Academy in Maine 
five years ago, and has not been 
as responsive as it used to be. 
"In the majors, I would have to 
play every day for six months. 
My arm probably would not have 
enough resting time to spring back 
to full strength." he said. 

Former St. Mary's High pitch- 
ing ace, Colabello felt that pitch- 
ing and depth of pitching were the 
most important requirements for 
capturing the CWS crown. The 
tall, left-hander pitched against 
Arizona State in the third round 
of the tournament. The Sun Dev- 
ils eliminated UMass by handing 
them a 4-2 defeat. 

Once again the New Englanders 
felt the effects of the longer sea- 
son that the Southern and Western 
teams are able to play. Cola- 
bello had only pitched four games 
all season while his opposite num- 
ber hurled twice as many games. 
Also, the Arizona batters had been 
exposed to many different types of 
pitching during their long season 
and had "sharper eyes". 

"Although any team could win on 
any given day, the one with the 
greatest number of first rate pit- 
chers would win in the long run." 
Colabello said. He added that 
UMass had five pitchers while most 
of the other teams had at least 
six and Arizona had seven. 

Colabello said he was less ner- 
vous against Arizona State than 
against BU in the playoffs. "I wa5 
so thrilled that I forgot to be ner- 
vous. I've been hearing about Ar- 
izona State since I was a little kid. 
Pitching against them wasadream 
*x>me true." 

The sophomore physical educa- 
tion major said he was very im- 
pressed with the hitting strength 
of five of the eight teams. "With 
most teams the hitters begin to 
weaken after the clean-up man, 
but with these teams even the 
eighth batter was a strong hitter." 
Colabello added it was very hard 
to strike out players. "You just 
hope you can get them to pop 

Colabello had great confidence 
in his fielders. "I went into 
every game believing that we would 
win." He was also strengthened 
in this confidence by knowing that 
seven Redmen entered the series 
as .300 plus hitters. 

One of the younger players on a 
young team, Colabello had high 
praise for co-captains Chinappi 
and Joe DiSarcina (a shortstop with 
a big bat who has been drafted 
by the San Diego Padres). "They 
were a tremendous help by holding 
the team together. We played as 
a team and there were no in- 
dividualists' . 

He thinks the Redmen's desire 
to return to Omaha will give them 
an added incentive next year. 
"Everyone is up to go back there 
and improve our record". 

Both Chinappi and Colabello are 
keeping active in baseball this 
summer. Chinappi is the coach 
of the Farese Homes team of the 
Babe Ruth League and Colabello 
pitches for the Craven Club in the 
tough Park League in Boston.

Armstrong and Aldrin transfer to LEM. 



CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. (AP) - It will be but a step, scarcely farther than a baby's, but it will be a 
stride across the ages of man. 
For the first time, man plans to walk upon soil that is not of his earth. 

The time has been precisely determined: at exactly 2:17 a.m. on the 21st day of the month of July, 

Separating the LEM from the command shin. 

A hovering landing on the moon. 

Armstrong takes man's first step on the moon. 

1969, a human will touch the moon. 
Three Americans named Arm- 
strong, Aldrin and Collins will be 
the instruments to fullfill the time- 
less dream. 

The Apollo 11 journey is to start 
from Cape Kennedy at 9:32 on the 
awesome power of the world's 
mightiest rocket, a 36- story- tall 
Saturn 5. 

For three days, the astonauts 
will follow the translunar trail 
blazed twice in the last seven 
months - by the Apollo 8 and 10 
crews who came tantalizingly close 
as they orbited earth's lonely des- 
ert satellite. 

Once in orbit, civilian Neil A. 
Armstrong, 38, and Air Force Col. 
Edwin E. Aldrin, 39, are to trans- 
fer into a lunar landing ship, leav- 
ing Air Force Lt. Col. Michael 
Collins, 38 alone in the command 

Armstrong and Aldrin are to fly 
their fragile craft to a touchdown 
in the Sea of Tranquility, landing 
at 4:23 p.m. Sunday July 20. At 
2:17 a.m. the next day, Armstrong 
is to become the first human being 
to step onto the barren lunar land- 
scape, to be followed by Aldrin. 

.Armstrong and Aldrin will spend 
about 2-1/2 hours outside. In all 
they'll be on the moon less than 
a day.

The astronauts are well aware 
their' s is the most dangerous space 
flight ever attempted. A slight 
error in their descent could send 
them crashing to the surface. If 
their liftoff engine doesn't fire, 
they will remain stranded on the 
moon, with enough oxygen for only 
two or three days, and no way of 

Armstrong and Aldrin say these 
are risks they're willing to take. 
They consider the flight no more 
hazardous than some of the spins 
they've taken in super-fast ex- 
perimental aircraft like the X-15 
rocket ship.

UMass Submits Supplemental 
Budget to Governor Sargent 

The University of Massachusetts has submitted a $9,974,543 sup- 
plemental budget request to Governor Francis W. Sargent for its 
three campuses in Amherst, Boston and Worcester. 

The major portion of the supplemental budget, $8.1 million, is for 
the Amherst campus which had $8.9 million cut from its original bud- 
get request. A total of $1.4 million is requested for the Boston cam- 
pus, and $453,500 for the medical school in Worcester. 

The University had originally requested a budget of $49 million 
for the Amherst campus. The governor recommended $38.7 million, 
a cut of more than $10 million, and despite attempts by the Senate to 
restore further cuts of $1.6 million by the House of Representatives, 
the final appropriation of $38 million by the Legislature left the 
Amherst campus $664,000 below the governor's recommendation. 

Commenting on the supplemental budget request, President John 
W. Lederle said, "We are fully aware of the difficult financial posi- 
tion of the Commonwealth, but without the needed funds to support our 
program at present levels while taking 1500 additional students next 
fall, we have had to put a freeze on all new and vacant positions. As 
a result we will have to cancel some class sections and courses 
this fall. We are being forced to eliminate many student counselor 
positions in the residence halls at a time in history when they are 
most needed. 

"We hope that the Governor and Legislature will give serious con- 
sideration to these requests so that the University of Massachusetts 
can continue to maintain quality." 

Nearly $4 million of the supplemental budget request is for per- 
manent and temporary salary requirements for the Amherst and Bos- 
ton campuses. The Amherst campus has a shortage of $2.2 million 
in its personnel services accounts as it begins the 1969-70 fiscal year. 
The supporting statement sent along with the request says "While 
the University has received additional faculty positions related to 

(Continued on Page 2) 

The appointment of Joseph B. 
Kilmartin, Jr., of Framingham, 
Massachusetts, as the Five Col- 
lege Fellow for 1969-70, has been 
announced by North Burn, the Five 
College Coordinator for Amherst, 
Hampshire, Mount Holyoke, and 
Smith Colleges and the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts. The Fel- 
lowship is a one-year, full-time 
position open to a recent graduate 
of any one of the five institu- 
tions. The appointee assists the 
Five College Coordinator with 
most aspects of cooperation among 
the Valley institutions and brings 
student points of view to them. 

Kilmartin received his B.A. de- 
gree in June, 1969, from UMass 
where he majored in history. He 
intends to pursue graduate study 
in Latin American history follow- 
ing his year as a Fellow. He 
brings to the Fellowship consid- 
erable experience in student gov- 
ernment and five- college coopera- 
tion. At the University he served 
two terms in the Student Senate. 
He was also a member of the Five 
College Student Coordinating 
Board for two years. This year 
he served on the Planning Liai- 
son Group and was Chairman of 
the Committee on Student Life, 
both established by the Five Col- 
lege Long Range Planning Com- 

ery bit of that training when the 
Saturn 5 thunders into the heav- 
ens and sends them soaring to- 
ward their distant target, 230,000 
miles away. 

After 76 hours, they sweep be- 
hind the moon's hidden backside 
and fire themselves into an orbit 
ranging from 69 to 196 miles high. 
Four hours later another blast 
from their engine lowers this to a 
69- mile- high circle. 

Now, the spaceship, the LEM 
linked to its nose, is traveling 
3,660 miles an hour, about one 
mile a second. 

Aldrin wiggles through a four- 
foot connecting tunnel into the 
LEM and checks its systems, re- 
turning to the command ship be- 
fore the astonauts settle down 
for eight hours sleep.

The mighty Saturn V stands ready to boost the three moon 
bound astronauts towards a rendezvous with history. 


Astros to Walk on Moon Monday 

(Continued from Page 1) 

The next morning, Armstrong 
and Aldrin transfer to the lunar 
lander and four hours later sep- 
arate it from descent. Collins, 
alone in the command ship, watches 
as the LEM swoops like a giant 
spider toward the surface below. 
He is spring- loaded to speed to the 
rescue if his companions meet 
trouble on the way down. 

The trip down takes more than 
two hours, a full circuit of the 
moon. There's no room for 
couches in the LEM, so the two 
men stand strapped in place as 
they guide their frail ship through 
a series of maneuvers to zero in 
on the landing site. 

The site chosen for Apollo 11 
is in the southwest corner of the 
Sea of Tranquility near a crater 
named Moltke. It is one of five 
Apollo landing spots selected as 
being relatively smooth and readily 
accessible from photos returned to 
earth by unmanned satellites. 

Hovering the LEM like a heli- 
copter for as long as 60 seconds, 
the astronauts select the smooth- 
est parking place. Sensitive probes 
dangling five feet below the four 
landing legs contact the surface 
and flash a light in the cabin. 
The engine shuts down and the lunar 
vehicle hits the surface with a jolt 
equivalent to a three-foot drop. 

The first thing Armstrong and 
Aldrin do is prepare the LEM for 
launching, in case they must make 
an early takeoff. Collins and the 
Apollo 11 command ship move into 
position once every two hours for 
an ideal liftoff in which the moon- 
landers can rendezvous in the 
shortest period, about three hours. 
However, they can blast off any- 
time in an emergency and execute 
an alternate catchup maneuver 
lasting five to seven hours.

On the moon, Armstrong and 
Aldrin eat, rest four hours and don 
their moon- walking suits and life- 
giving backpacks. 

Ten hours after landing, Arm- 
strong opens the hatch and steps 
backward down a nine- rung lad- 
der attached to one of the legs. 
He hesitates on the second rung 
from the bottom and opens a panel 
on the side of the LEM, expos- 
ing a black and white television 
camera that relays live to earth 
his momentous first step on the 

On the moon, the astronauts 
work from a list of priorities. 

"The first priority," Arm- 
strong said, "is to take photo- 
graphs from the LEM of the land- 
ing site. The second priority - 
the first after man is on the sur- 
face - is to obtain a contingency 
sample of surface material from 
near the bottom of the ladder." 

Twenty-seven minutes after 
Armstrong steps on the moon, Al- 
drin joins him. They stand in the 
inch-thick dust and gaze at the 
desolation surrouding them. Their 
space suits protect them from the 
harsh 250-degree temperature and 
the storm of radiation flowing from 
the sun. 

Apollo ll's rocks should keep ge- 
ologists busy for years. But be- 
cause they come from only one 
small area of the moon, they will 
only whet the appetites of scien- 

If future flights are approved, 
astronauts will fly into suspect- 
ed volcanic areas, riverlike chan- 
nels, fracture zones and into the 
center of craters, gradually ex- 
tending their stay-time on the 
surface to several days. 

From these early explorations, 
NASA expects to learn if it would 
be worthwhile to build an Ant- 
arctica-type base on the moon. It 
could be manned by 20 or 30 per- 
sons, with crewmen being ex- 
changed from time to time. 

If man one day goes to the plan- 
ets, the moon could be a stopping 
off place, a gas station, with fuel 
manufactured in lunar refineries. 

"The third 
strong said, 

priority," Arm- 
is to take photo- 
graphs from the surface of the 
landing site. The next order of 
priority is to set up the televi- 
sion camera about 30 feet off to 
the side." 

While Armstrong mounts the 
TV camera, Aldrin sets up a 
solar wind composition exper- 
iment, unrolling a piece of alumi- 
num foil and hanging it like a sail 

on a telescoping stand. It traps 
particlos of gases blowing from 
the sun. Before leaving, the as- 
tronauts roll it up to bring home. 

They deploy two other experi- 
ments about 70 feet from the 

The astronauts unpack geo- 
logical tools and two stainless 
steel boxes and begin collecting 
rocks and soil samples. 

After about 2-1/2 hours outside, 
the astronauts climb the ladder 
and re-enter the LEM, repres- 
surizing the cabin and hocking 
their suits into the ship's life 
support system. 

They rest nearly five hours and, 
working in close radio contact with 
Collins, make ready to leave the 
moon after a stay of 21 hours 
27 minutes. 

The bottom half of the craft, 
with the descent engine and land- 
ing legs, serves as a launching 
pad. At the proper moment, Arm- 
strong and Aldrin fire their ascent 
engine and the LEM cabin section 
darts upward. For more than three 
hours they play a game of celes- 
tial tag with the command ship, 
gradually closing the gap until 
they are only feet apart. 

Collins nudges the harpoon- like 
docking mechanism into the LEM's 
nose and secures the two craft. 
Before leaving the LEM, they vac- 
uum the cabin and collect swept- up 
material in canisters containing a 
chemical absorbant. 

Carrying their cameras and rock 
boxes, the LEM pilots transfer thr- 
ough the tunnel into the command 
cabin. Eight hours later, the 
lunar orbit and the astonauts trig- 
ger their big engine to start the 
63-hours homeward journey. 

When the three astronauts splash 
down in the Pacific Ocean they'll 
be treated more like plague bear- 
ers than conquering heroes. They, 
their rocks and their spaceship 
will be placed behind a biological 
barrier on the remote chance they 
have brought home lunar bacteria 
that could harm earthlings. 

The astronauts will don bio- 
logical suits and step into a raft 
sprayed with an iodine disinfec- 
tant. They spray themselves and 
the spacecraft with more of the 
germ- killer and then will be 
hoisted by helicopter to the deck of 
the carrier Hornet. 

The Hornet will steam about 
2-1/2 days toward Hawaii, where 
the trailer will be transferred to 
a plane for the flight to the Manned 
Spacefraft Center, Houston, Tex.

ANTHOLOGY, will open Wednes- 
day evening at 8:30 p.m. in Bart- 
lett Auditorium as the third play 
in the current UMass Summer 
Theatre repertory. 

The dramatization of the Mas- 
ters ANTHOLOGY adds musical 
interludes to the presentation of 
nearly seventy of the over 200 
vignettes and characterizations of 
small-town Ik which Masters 
created in the original work half 
a century ago. 

Though no real plot emerges 
in SPOON RIVER, some of Mas- 
ters' poems are regrouped into 
logical units of interacting char- 
acters, reinforcing in stage terms 
thp collective unity of the poetic 
work. The "characters" are all 
ghosts laid to rest in the Spoon 
River cemetery -- erstwhile in- 
habitants of the town who are now 

revealing the secrets they carried 
with them to the grave. 

Many of the ghosts reveal se- 
crets involving bitterness, jeal - 
ousy and disillusionment behind the 
often serene appearance of their 
Spoon River lives. Some secrets 
are humorous, some tender; all 
add up to what one critic called 
"a dramatic presentation reduced 
to its simplest terms. . .moving 
and beautiful." 

Howard Taubman of the New 
York TIMES has written, "The 
remarkable thing about SPOON 
RIVER is the way its desparate 
little autobiographies merge into 
a unit. 

The UMass production will have 
seven performances, in repertory 
with Murray Schisgal's THE TY- 
PISTS and THE TIGER and Harold 
Pinter's THE HOMECOMING. Tic- 
ket reservations may be made by 
calling 545-2579. 


Summer Film Series 
Opens Sunday Night 

Films raging from FREAKS to 
SINGIN' IN THE RAIN, and a gal- 
axy of stars including Gregory 
Peck, Mae West, W. C. Fields 
and Ruby Keeler, highlight the 
UMass Summer Theatre's second 
season of memorable moments on 
the American screen, starting Sun- 
day, July 20, at 8:30 p.m. in Bart- 
lett Auditorium, Amherst. 

The coming series, titled "Two 
Golden Decades — A Star-Spang- 
led Banner of American Films," 
samples the period from 1932 to 
1952. It has been arranged by 
Richard Stromgren, director of 
film studies in the UMass De- 
partment of Speech. 

American film history has ne- 
ver been clearly marked by re- 
naissance, or a "golden era," 
as was film production in France, 
Germany and Russia; yet Myra 
Breckenridge is not alone in 
looking to the thirties and forties 
with a combination of affection 
and respect as the period of Hol- 
lywood's greatest achievement. 
The American movies of these 
first two decades of "talkies" 
create a profusion of types and 
styles. The present film series 
attempts to represent certain 
genres common to the era in a 
selection of some of the best 
films of the time. 

The most uniquely American 
genre is the Western, represented 
in the series by MY DARLING 
FIGHTER (1950). The tradition of 
the Western goes back to the 
very earliest of the silent films, 
as does that of American screen 
comedy. But the latter grew 

more sophisticated as it moved 
into the era of the talkies. A 
new roster of comic stars 
emerged, and its style was char- 
acterized more by witty repartee 
and less by slap- stick routine 
and mime. Comedy is repre- 
sented in the series by the Laurel 
and Hardv and W. C. Fields shorts 
BER SHOP, and the features MON- 

The film musical can claim no 
heritage, of course, in the silent 
screen, nor is it a uniquely Amer- 
ican genre. For their elegance 
and imaginative blending of song, 
dance and comic spirit, however, 
the American musical stands a- 
lone as something of a special 
breed. The series will present 
the musicals FORTY-SECOND 
STREET (1933) and the more re- 
cent SINGIN' IN THE RAIN (1952). 

The "psychological drama" em- 
braces a wide range of film types, 
from horror films to semi- docu- 
mentaries, and works in this group 
have made significant contributions 
to the development of screen nar- 
rative, both in content and in style. 
The series will represent this 
genre with Billy Wilder's DOUBLE 
INDEMNITY, the little known but 
powerful Tod Browning thriller 
FREAKS and the Orson Welles 

classic Citizen kane. 

Films will be shown Sunday, 
Monday and Tuesday evenings at 
8:30 p.m. Tickets will be sold at 
the door. Schedules are available 
on request from the Box Office, 
University Theatre, Barlett Hall' 
Amherst 01002. 

The University Summer Theatre film series TWO GOLDEN 
DECADES, which will be given Sunday, Monday and Tuesday 
evenings in Bartlett Auditorium at 8:30 starting July 20, will 
carry an admission charge of 50 cents to all patrons, includ- 
ing UMass Summer Students. 

The film series is presented by University Theatre and is 
not part of the Summer Arts Festival program. Because it 
is a self-supporting operation, not subsidized by the Student 
Activities tax, the admission charge must be extended to all

enrollment increases on the basis of a 15:1 ratio, adequate staffing 
of non-faculty personnel has not been maintained." Mjstofthis 
money was cut from what is called "support areas," technicians, 
clerks, secretaries and librarians to serve additional students on 
the Amherst and Boston campuses. 

Another $1.3 million in Amherst and $176,000 in Boston is requested 
to maintain current services and increase student wages required by 
federal law, to provide teaching assistants, summer school salaries 
and graduate student fellowships. 

Since the support funds for such things as instructional equipment, 
maintenance and repairs and educational supplies were only increased 
in the recent appropriation by $23,150 over last year to provide for 
1500 more students in Amherst, the University is asking for an addi- 
tional $944,000. The equipment account alone is $35,000 less than 
last year. The supporting document points out that this is not for new 
programs or increases in quality but just to maintain basic support. 

The Amherst campus is also asking for $1 million for library books 

Si^ n lJ he past five years tne annual appropriation for books has been 
♦200,000, while enrollment has increased by 8,000 students 

Other major items in the supplemental budget are $100,000 to ex- 
pand the University's very successful program for the disadvantaged 
Worcester $339 ' 000 for equipment for the new medical schoolin

Religious People 
Let Us Unite 

A segregated faith tends to shut its own truth in and other truth 
out. Its center of gravity is itself. 

We need one another. Let us unite and supply that need! 

So long as we remain segregated into many faiths we deny the very 
spirit of religion and deny ourselves its full benefit. 

There has never been a time when there was greater need for 
religion to bring its full united strength to bear. 

Segregation is bad emotionally. It tends to cramp our we-feeling 
within the limits of fellow segregated sectarians rather than to include 
all religous people. 

Segregation is bad intellectually. Through the ages, segregated 
faiths have demanded implicit — even blind — obedience. "Thou 
shalt!" and "Thou shalt not!" were not to be questioned. 

History condemns segregation which limits, blights and pits 
faith against faith. A faith, emboldened by its sense of certainty, has 
fought other faiths with even greater zeal than it has fought irrehgion. 

Sects split communities, nations and the world into serf-centered 
groups who disrupt society and make it hard to work together Secta- 
rian preferences and prejudices spill over into politics, education, 
business, the employment office, medicine and other fields as manipu- 
lators appeal to prejudice and play one group against others. 

By contrast. One Religion of Brotherhood would pool the Reli- 
gious Experiences of all in the enjoyment of a common Religious Life 
of Service and in the search for greater Relgious Truth. It is a Umty 
of Purpose — The Practice of Brotherhood. 

The faiths have shown little inclination to merge. It became evi- 
dent that if an inclusive religion were created in our day, individual 
One Religionists would have to create it. Numerous local One Religion 
groups are needed. Such a grass roots movement is likely to be more 
vital, dynamic and meaningful to its members than one organized and 
controlled from above. 

Relicious People, Let Us Unite! 

We Unite in One Religion of Brotherhood

Pats Patter, Plod and Practice 
As Violence Erupts at Stadium 


The Boston Patriots began the real business involved in being professional athletes this week at 
the University. It's called the "daily grind" by office workers and a "drag" by others, football 
players call it practice. 

Six Experimental Flicks 
To Be Shown in Southwest 

Practice is what all 70 players 
seven coaches, a public relations 
man, and a publicity man, two 
trainers, five ballboys, one sec- 
retary one general manager, sev- 
eral doctors and assorted news- 
men are here for. 

Two practices a day, five days 
a week, is what they are here 
for, along with scrimmages Sat- 
urday and only a few meetings 
Sunday, the day of rest. But 
practice wouldn't be so bad if it 
wasn't for the contact, the pun- 
ishment. That's what the people 
come to see. 

Monday, 200 spectators came in 
the afternoon to watch the Patriots 
work out, a few more than the 
10 a.m. practice drew. They came 
to see if men like Jim Nance had 
the speed, power and bad ankle 
they had read about, or if "Ike" 
Eisenhauer was really as big as 
they say. They came to see the 
veterans and the rookies. They 
came to see a little violence. 

"The Killer", gave the people 
a show, or perhaps it should be 
called "the killer" vs. the line- 
dummy . 

ed rail that slides down at line- 
men with the force of a 200 pound 
back. Of course, the dummy didn't 
have spikes, or knees, or hard 
muscle, but the spectators were 
amazed at the players as they each 
took their shots at it. 

It received so much attention 
from the spectators the coach 
running the machine doubled the 
springload to put on a better show. 
This went on for two or three 
shots until the machine put out 
the shoulder of a 240 pound line- 
man and the group moved onto 
another drill. And so, the prac- 
tice went on with collisions, bru- 
ises, sprains and pulls that are 
mild, in print only. 

Four Quarterbacks are compet- 
ing for one starting job. Line- 
men roared to get their weight 
moving and backs side-stepped and 
changed speed. All had played this 
"game" tor more than eight years. 
Now it was business. 

Practice will continue through 
the summer. Names will come, as 
stories about how veterans are 
doing, or if rookies will make the 
next cut, will be in the papers. 
The guess on how the Pats will 
do this summer under new lead- 
ership will become easier to make 
as time goes on. But for now it 
will be double sessions, meetings, 
aches, pains and worries. 

"Football isn't really a violent 

game," one of the sportwriters 
said. "Television makes it vio- 
lent." Why squeezing marshmal- 
lows to see if they're done would 
be violent, "if you could put a zoom 
camera and a shotgun microphone 
on them," that was one comment 
at practice Monday. The person 
making the comment could only 
have been half deaf and perhaps 
nearsighted if he was serious. 
Violence will be on the field 
whenever the team practices, and 
until the Pats return to Boston, 
physical contact, pain, mental ela- 
tion and depression are only oc- 
cupational hazards in the way these 
guys make a living. 

Tomorrow at 9 p.m., experi- 
mental film-maker Edward Ems- 
hwiller will present six of his 
films in Southwest residence on 
the Bekshire Commons Terrace. 
The films to be shown are. . . 
1 Dance Chromatic 2- Life Lines, 
3-Thantatopsis, 4- Totem, 5-Geo- 
rge Dampsons Place, 6-Relativity. 

Emshwiller has won prizes both 

here and abroad for his films. 
He has shown at the Museum of 
Modern Art and is the recipient 
of a Ford Foundation Grant for 
film making. Before and after 
the film program, Emshwiller will 
talk about the films shown. The 
presentation is part of the Sum- 
mer Arts Program and admission 
is free.

Gov. Sargent Promises More Cuts for University 

Governor Francis W. Sargent 
let it be known yesterday that he 
will once again make cuts in the 
Univ. of Mass budget in the wake 
of the new pay raise for state 
employees passed by the legisla- 
ture over his veto. 

In the House the vote on the pay 
raise was 195 to 32 to override, 
while in the Senate it was 31 to 

The total vote, about 6 to 1, was 
far from the one third vote needed 
in either chamber to sustain the 

Minutes after the Senate vote, 
Governor Sargent held a press con- 
ference and stated, "The action 
overriding my veto of the state 
employee pay raise is an outrage. 
The Legislature has raised $100 
million in taxes and then spent all 
but a fraction of it on a raise 
highlighted by $30 million grab- 
bag of money retroactive to Jan- 
uary." The Governor went onto 
say he, "deplored the irrespon- 
sibility," of the Republicans who 
voted to override the veto. 

At this point it seemed that the 
only effect this would have on 
UMass would be to produce 3500 
plus very happy state employees. 

This notion was quickly dis - 
pelled however, when the Governor 
stated, "Let the word go out to 
the University of Massachusetts, 
to the Mental Health Department, 
to law enforcement agencies. . . 
there can be no new spending for 
these programs. Unmet needs will 
remain unmet." 

" Sargent had originally pro- 
posed a 9 to 14% pay hike, retro- 
active to Jan. 1, only to find it 

sidetracked in the Legislature 
where there was strong support 
for a $20 or 12% pay hike. 
The $20-a-week raises will be 

applied to those at the low end of 
the economic scale. For instance, 
a $100 a week state employee mak- 
ing $5200 a year will get a $1040 
raise. At Br top of the scale, 
the 22 per cent pay hike will be 
in effect and a $300 a week em- 
ployee making $15,600 a year will 
add $1872 to his salary. The 
breakoff point, where the percent- 
age raise is larger than $20 a 
week is $167 a week, according to 
State House financial wizards. 

The difference between the le- 
gislative and executive packages 
was hit by House Speaker and 
UMass graduate David M. Bart- 
ley in a statement, as an effort 
to create "political class war- 
fare." Bartley said the govern- 
or's plan of 14% across the board 
raises would have granted the lar- 
ger increases to higher paid em- 

The actual financial implications 
of the Governor's statement con- 
cerning the University are not yet 
known. However, the matter is 
causing speculation in Whitmore. 

According to David A. Gugin, 
Assistant Dean of Administration, 
"There is deep concern over the 
ramifications of the Governor's 
comments as to whether they are 
general or fucused on the supple- 
mental budget." 

If a cut Is made in the Univer- 
sity's supplemental budget of $9, 
974,543. it will seriously hinder 

the schools future plans for con- 
tinuing, quality higher education. 

When asked several weeks ae-o 
about the supplemental request, 
President John W. Lederle stated, 
"We are fully aware of the diffi- 
cult financial position of Common- 
wealth, but without the needed 
funds to support our program at 
present levels while taking 1500 

additional students next fall, we 
have to put a freeze on all new 
and vacant position. As a result 
we will have to cancel some class 
sections and courses this fall. We 
are being forced to eliminate many 

student counselor positions in 
the residence halls at a time in 
history when they are most 

Further effects will be felt in 
the 01,02,03 fund levels if cuts 
are made. These funds are vital 
to the operation of the University 
since they provid temporary help. 
Included in the 03 payroll are 
graduate teaching assistantships, 
student help and the summer sch- 

The University, attempting to 
meet the minimum federal wage 
requirement for student help of 

$1.45/hour, keeping the summer 
school program operating, and 
paying other temporary help, may 
find itself in a difficult situation 
of needing this help, but not being 
able to pay for it. 

If sufficient fund s are cut from 
the UMass request the University 
has two alternatives. It may, 
later in the year, file a deficiency 
budget with the Legislature, if it 
must pay people with funds it 
does not have, or make cut backs 
on student enrollment and pro- 
grams at the University to assure 
that a major dificiency situation 
does not occur.

Astronauts Return from Moon Voyage, 
NASA Looks Toward New Space Feats 

SPACE CENTER, Houston (AP) -- The Apollo 11 moon explorers streaked ever faster toward earth 
yesterday, on a perfect course that is to land them in the Pacific at 12:49 p.m. today. 

Looking ahead to spleashdown, spacecraft commander Neil Armstrong asked about the weather in 
the recovery area and was told, "It looks real good out there. The forecast is for scattered clouds 
at 3.000 feet and a risibility of 10 miles," by mission control. 

The astronauts set their course 

Study Into Amherst Housing 

The Amherst housing situation is the target of two separate investiga- 
tions, one by the town's housing inspector and the other by a group of 

Amherst Housing Inspector Joseph Levine will begin inspecting mul- 
ti-dwelling homes beginning in the fall to insure that state and federal 
requirements for housing are being met. 

Town Manager Allen Torrey said dwellings where students are 
housed will be looked at particularly. He added that between 50-60 
houses were inspected last year and improvements were made as a re-

appearance of homes will be discontinued. 

Starting in the fall, Torrey said, dwellings known to house students 
will be looked at by the Housing Authority.

craft carrier Hornet. They ended 
their historic exploration of the 
moo n early Tuesday by shooting 
themselves out of lunar orbit and 
gradually gained speed as they 
raced deeper into the grip of 
earth's gravity. 

As they head for their fiery 
dash back through the armosphere, 
the astonauts may see an unus- 
ual number of lights along the 
west coast of the United States. 

Homes and businesses in sev- 
eral cities have been asked to 
turn their lights on early Thurs- 
day. The idea originated with a 
Seattle radio station. Disc jock- 
eys in Portland, San Francisco 
and Vancouver, B.C were con- 
tacted and responded favorably. 
When Armstrong, Aldrin and 

Collins hit the Pacific, they'll be 
treated more like plague bearers 
than moon conquerors. 

They, their rocks and their 
spaceship will be placed behind a 
biological barrier on the remote 
cnance they have brought home 
lunar bacteria that could harm life 
on earth. 

The astronauts will don biologi- 
cal suits and step into a raft 
sprayed with a disinfectant. On the 
deck of the Hornet they will be 
taken to a sealed trailer which 
will be their home for 2-1/2 days 
during a sea-air tranfer to a lunar 
receiving laboratory in Houston. 

One of the dignitaries who will 
greet the astonauts on the Hornet 
will be President Nixon, and even 
he will only be able to wave to 
the explorers through a window. 

After their stay in the Lunar 
receiving laboratory however, the 

astronauts will receive a hero's 
welcome in three cities, Mew York, 
and Los Angeles, all in the space 
of 24 hours. 

While the world was still gasp- 
ing at the feat of Apolli 11, NASA 
officials were thinking about the 

Nine more lunar landings are 
planned in the next three years, 
each to a different area to probe 
various geological features. There 
missions gradually will increase 
man's stay- time on the moon and 
scientists will be flown on the 
later trips, taking along flying and 
roving machines to increase their 
area of exploration. 

These landings will determine 
the feasibility of establishing an 
Antartica-type base on the moon to 
conduct scientific, medical and

The Museum of Natural History

thou&aiids are flocking each day. 
It seemed especially relevant to 
visit the exhibit Sunday, a few

The exhibit is encased in a 
specially built "room within a

a "tunnel-liking opening." The 
"tunnel" leads from room to room 
much like a n amusement park 
funhouse, but this is anything but 
a funhouse. 

Start placidly, an almost dull 
movie of plant life and animal 
life explains that "a balance of 
nature" is necessary and that per- 
haps man is changing the balance. 
The only picture of man so far is

that is the point of the exhibit,

ugliness glaring as the crowd con-

A small African boy is held in

America's future course in 
space may be set in September, 
when President Nixon receives a 
report from a task force com- 
mittee that is to recommend goals 
for the next decade. 

The head of the committee, Vice 
President Sprio T. Agnew, sug- 
gested during the flight of Apollo 
11 that the United States set a 
goal of landing men on Mars in 
this century. He is expected to 
be overruled because space lea- 
ders believe it would be inadvis- 
able to set such a commitment 
until after a series of unmanned 
probes have been sent to the red 
planet in the next few years. 

In stead, the committee is ex- 
pected to recommend the mid- 
1970's launching of a 10 or 12- 
man space station that could con- 
duct weather, communications, en- 
gineering and scientific exper- 
iments. By adding segments to 
the station from time to time, 
ti could accommodate 100 or more 
men and women. 

When U. S. - Soviet cooperation 
does come, it probably will be 
directed a t a lunar base which 
would be manned by scientists and 
engineers of many nations. Con- 
siderable spadework has been done 
at several international space 

And one day man will fly to the 
planets and deep into the universe, 
because that frontier has been op- 
ened to them by the courageous 
men who today fly Apollo 11 back 
to earth.

Landlord Files Law Suit 
Against Education Prof. 

Tha rase of WUUamAubin, landlord, versus David C. Berliner, UMass 
.Jfe«nr which has become a cause celebre for some UMass students, 
professor wnicniuib District Court when a statement by 

SStaSS h me°d Sy. He hasfiled suit for damages and delinqueS! 
Auoin w aw « oiipgediv caused by the Berliners. 
Ten ^ltX!^lfm^phe7s^tz of Springfield, the Berliner's 
.t^^mSSsoaS^^ situation could be resolved out of 
ffW, developments may have euminated that hope. 
f£ case of the landlord and his tenant has evoked an unusual re- 
snonse inAmherst. Berliner mentioned he received a large number of 
sympathetic phone calls from strangers when the case was first 

^Attention was focused on the case when Berliner and his wife were 
ar ra ened for disturbing the peace. They were arrested for lying under 
f£S farto wevent its being towed away by the police. 

Aubin had filed attachment for the car and the Berliners' bank account 
for back^ent but they said they had not received notice of the attach, 
rn^nt The Berliners had to be dragged from under the car by the 
police. This case will be heard in December, presumably when civil 
nrncppdines have been resolved. 

P A markine of hearing on the case filed today has been awaiting this 
artion and the return of Judge Charles O'Connor, who has been pre- 
rtSS at South Hadley District Court for the past week. Judge 0' 
rnnnnr Dresided on an earlier hearing of the case. 

The Berliners did not appear at that hearing on July 3, and a de- 
cision was made in which the plaintiff Aubin, prevailed by default 
The Presently pending hearing resulted from a request for a stay of 
iudement filed byAtty. Shatz on behalf of the Berliners. 
J ?hT Plaintiff's statement , filed by Atty . Paul Ford of Amherst, 
included a list of costs allegedly suffered by Aubin. The sum of $339 
Dlus some attorney's fees was mentioned as principal amount due in the 
suit. Aubin also mentioned damages to the Berliners apartment as 

reason for the suit. 

Berliner has denied the charge of delinquency in paying his rent, 
which involves some of the sum mentioned by Aubin. The rest of the 
figure includes such fees as those resulting from the towing of Ber- 
liner's car. Aubin has stated that he had an attachment issued for the 
Berliner car after failing to obtain their rent. 

Berliner has also denied the charge of dausing damage to the apart- 
ment he rents to Aubin. He has said anyone wishing to verify his 
position can come to his apartment on Bedford Court. 

Both Aubin and the Berliners have been further disturbed by the 
distribution of pamphlets about their case. Apparently, a group of 
UMass students felt the suit brought by Aubin was an unjustified 
harassment of the Berliners and issued a flier describing the events 
in a tone very critical of Aubin. 

Berliner disavowed any connection with the group's action last 
week, and he added the fliers had been distributed against his express 


Berliner first contested his landlord last winter when he and his 
wife organized a petition signed by a number of Aubon's tenants. The 
petition complained of lax maintenance practices by Aubin. This 
activity , however, is not related to either of the court actions pending

EDGARTOWN, Mass. (AP) - A 
special Dukes County prosecutor 
says he Is considering whether 
charges of driving to endanger 
and driving under the influence 
of alcohol might be placed against 
Sen. Edward M. Kennedy. 

Walter E. Steele told a news 
conference Tuesday that the ad- 
ditional charges were under con- 
sideration as an investigation con- 
tinued into the accident early Sat- 
urday in which a young secretary 
riding in Kennedy's car died. 

Kennedy is already charged with 
leaving the scene of the accident. 
"These have all been consid- 
ered and have not been ruled out," 
Steele said of the possible addi- 
tional charges. 

He said there is no material 
evidence to indicate that the car 
in which Miss Mary Jo Kopechne 
died was operated in a manner 
to endanger. 

Steele said he hoped to deter- 
mine whether there had been drink- 
ing - or heavy drinking - at the 
party attended by Miss Kopechne 
the night she died. 

"I can't say specifically that 
we are making an Investigation 
into heavy drinking," Steele said. 
"The investigation is continuing 
to determine whether other com- 
plaints should be sought and the 
consumption of alcohol will be 

A medical examiner reported 
Tuesday that a sample of Miss 
Kopechne 's blood showed a small 
amount of alcohol. Dr. Donald 
R. Mills said it was insignificant, 
"such as might show in a person 
who has had a few cocktails." 
Meanwhile the Registryhassus 

pended Kennedy' s drivers license. 
The commonwealth also hopes 
to learn who attended the party 
Friday night at the rented cot- 
tage on Chappaquiddick Island, St- 
eele said 

Miss Kopechne, 28, of Wash- 
ington, D.C., drowned when a car 
Kennedy was driving went off a 
bridge and landed bottom up in a 
tidal pond. 

The Massachusetts Democrat, 
37, escaped with a mild concus- 
sion and strained neck muscles. 
He did not report the accident 
until several hours after it hap- 

He was charged with leaving 
the scene of an accident in which 
personal injury resulted. Kennedy 
said he was in shock after the 

Edgartown Police Chief Domin- 
ic Arena said: "I am concerned 
only with the charge of leaving the 
scene of an accident. I know no- 
thing of any party. It is only a 
rumor. All I know about that is 
what I read in the papers. I 
know nothing of who was there, 
only that Mr. (Joseph) Gargan 
rented the house." 

"I've got to repeat again," Ar- 
ena told the news conference, " and 
say emphatically that there is 
no negligence involved in this ac- 

When a reporter asked if the 
police considered the possibility 
that there was heavy drinking at 
the party, Arena answered: "The 
police investigation is continuing 
into whether there was heavy 
drinking or not, or whether there 
was any drinking or no drinking." 
Arena said earlier that his in- 
vestigation into the incident had 

been completed, but he told the 
news conference that he would 
continue to "probe into my own 
charge," Arena brought the com- 
plaint of leaving the scene of an 

"So far, we have circumstan- 
tial evidence," Arena said. "We 
have no right even to ask him to 
take a breathalyser test." 

Arena said Kennedy's constitu- 
tional rights would have been vio- 
lated if he had asked the senator 
to take the test when he reported 
the accident several hours after 
it happened. 

"Besides, at 9 a.m. that morn- 
ing (Saturday) we had nothing to 
Indicate he had been drinking," 

Arena said, adding that the pres- 
ent case against Kennedy "began 
the moment this man walked away 
from the accident." 

Asked by a newman if he be- 
lieved Kennedy had been in shock 
after the accident as he said, 
Arena replied: "Yes, but for 
how long?" 

Nixon's New Anti-Drug Campaign 
Criticized by New York Prof 

ident Nixon's newly announced drug 
program has left many scientists 
and legislators involved with drug 
problems unfavorably impressed. 
While many medical people and 
politicians are calling for a shift 
In emphasis from penalties against 
drug users to education and treat- 
ment, Nixon is calling for stiffer 

And while many are calling for 
milder or no penalties for pos- 
session and sale of marijuana, a 
substance which many physicians 
can find no harm in, Nixon is call- 
ing for stiffer penalties. 

Dr. Vincent P. Dole of New 
York's Rockefeller University 
drug treatment and education pro- 

Thts is the simplistic approach. 
It's the attitude that, when a sys- 
tem is not working, you just stif- 
fen the penalties." It won't work, 
he adds. 

Included in the Nixon bill would 
be stiffened penalties for sale and 
use of LSD and stiffened penal- 
ties for sale of marijuana. Laws 
against hard drugs likewise would 
be stiffened. Also included in the 
Nixon proposal would be the le- 
galization of a "no-knock" provi- 
sion by which police with a war- 
rant could enter a suspect's resi- 
dence without knocking, breaking in 
if they felt it necessary. 

As for penalties, the prison sen- 
tences for sale and use of mari- 
juana would remain the same, but 
the fine for a first selling offense 
would be raised from $20,000 to

John Hopkins Professor Protests 
Says Nerve Gas Could Kill Millions 

EDGEWCOD, Md. - (CPS) - "An accident could occur here at any time Uke it did at Dugway in 
Utah Onlv it won't be 6.400 sheep. It will be 3,000,000 people." 

That is how Keitt D. Garlid, biophysicist' at John Hopkins University, has described the danger

in the ooen air about 20 miles northeast of the city.

ms near such a populated area. The nerve gas outcry began developing when US Rep Richard 
BoCaX (SSy) SSke out against the Army's plans to ship more than 800 carloads of obsolete 
nprve ms across the country for dumping in the Atlantic Ocean. 

McCarthy s efforts also were instrumental in forcing the Pentagon to announce ft* nerve gas 
was being tested Ita Tthe air at three American military bases: Ft. McClellan, Ala.; Dugway Prov- 

^A^C^ tasf fasTyear 6,400 sheep were accidentally killed following the improper re- 
lease of some of the gas . In another case at the Utah test area, a portion of the proving grounds 
was permanently contaminated by a biological warfare agent. 

McCarthy h J cited these cases in warning of the dangers of testing chemical and b o ogica war- 
fare materials He has charged that Ft. Detrick, Md., the nation's ^ st J e ^ ™' 
fare has had 3,300 accidents connected with its research in a nine-year period ending in 1962 Of - 
fldals argue mat the test process is "inefficient and clumsy - but safe " They say most of the 
accidents at Ft. Detrick can be attributed to sources other than biological warfare mishaps. 

The Pentagon has admitted spending $350 million for chemical and biological warfare research 
during me flfcal year just ended Critics of the research, however, have Maimed mat me Edgewood

Head of Astronomy Dept. 
Tries to Unlock Secrets 

The chairman of the UMass astonomy program Is trying to unlock 
some of the secrets which have hidden the origin of stars and comets 

Working under a one-year, $20,000 National Science Foundation 
grant Dr. William M. Irvine is studying cosmic dust in reflection 
nebulae aid comets, a topic which Dr. Thomas Amy, his colleage 
at the University, terms "the key intermediate step between uncon- 
densed gases and fully formed planets and stars." 

Dr. Irvine is studying the condensation of inter-stellar gases into 
"cosmic dust" - a mysterious configuration believed by some to re- 
semble ice crystals. Clouds of this dust blot out stars behind them 
as they drift through space. These clouds, called reflection nebulae, 
may occasionally collapse and, over a long period of time, form 

of arc 

A great deal of cosmic dust surrounds our solar system, and por- 
tions of it gradually condense, forming "proto-comets" at great 
distances from the sun. However, over billions of years, they are 
drawn in toward the center of the solar system. As they move near 
the sun, cosmic dust gradually melts and trails behind the comet, thus 

creating its tail. 

Dr. Irvine is attempting to determine the exact nature of cosmic dust, 
and in this way, determine if it is indeed the intermediate step in the 
formation of stars and comets. 

This is the third grant Dr. Irvine has received since coming to UMass 
in 1966. He has received grants from the National Science Founda- 
tion, NASA, and Harvard University to study planetary atmospheres, 
the first two in 1967, the third in 1968. 

Dr. Irvine came to the University in 1966 as the chairman of the 
astronomy program of the newly created physics and astronomy de- 
partment. He has been a member of the five-college astronomy de- 
partment, a cooperate effort by UMass, Amherst College, Smith Col- 
lege, Mt. Holyoke College and Hampshire College. 

The author of 25 articles on astronomy and astrophysics, Dr. Ir- 
vine received his B.A. from Pomona College in 1957, his M.A. from 
Harvard in 1958, and his Ph. D. from Harvard in 1961.

In Paintings of Moon 

Before men ever got near the

side to the other with a paint- 

Moonscapes have been Hen- 
drick's specialty ever since he saw 
a moon probe photo of the giant 
Crater Copernicus over two years 
ago and used it as the basis for 
an abstract painting. Now his 
moonscapes are nationally-known 
and have been shown in nine juried 
exhibitions from one end of the 

country to the other within the 
past year. 

Hendricks is still working from 
NASA and other photos but his ap- 
proach is changing as cameras 
have gotten closer and closer to 
the moon surface and more and 
more detail has been revealed. His 
early works tended to be silvery 
abstractions; his current work is 
inclining more and more toward

The presidents, meeting for a

nelled most of its financial effort 
to help black students into the 
white colleges which have "no 
deep understanding of and appre- 
ciation for toe problems of the 
disadvantaged minority student." 

They charged that money appro- 
priated by Congress to teach "dis- 
advantaged" students had been 
given to white colleges, and that 
toe white schools had used the 
money to lure top black scholars 
from black colleges. The presi-

The day following toe reversal 
of the Spock case, the Student Mo- 
bilization Committee to end the 
War in Vietnam announced its 
fall offensive against toe war.

tional class and business boycott 
on Oct. 15, followed one month 
later by a nationwide march on 
Washington. A national student 
strike is scheduled for toe day 
before the march, Nov. 14. 

The Mobilization Committee 
hopes toe march on Washington will 
be toe largest antiwar action this 
country has ever seen. 

The need for action is as great 
as ever, according to Michael 
Ferber, a Harvard graduate stud- 
ent, whose draft conspiracy con- 
viction was overturned with 
Spock's. He has warned anti- 
war people not to take much con- 
fidence in toe overturning of their 
cases by toe 1st U.S. Court of

sion makes some persons who are 
opposed to toe war "think the

able after all, then it is actually 
setting them back...If they think 
the acquittal means justice is done, 
then that's a mistake."

talks at 55 colleges in toe last

Allen Ginsberg to Read 
Poetry on Southwest Mall 

Hollander Quartet Performs Tuesday 

Poet Allen Ginsberg will give 
an outdoor reading of his works 
next Wednesday evening at 8 p.m. 
on The Mall, Southwest. Pre- 
sented by the Summer Arts Pro- 
gram, Ginsberg will be foUowed 
Thursday evening by poetess 
Gwendolyn Brooks. 

To the world at large, Allen 
Ginsberg is perhaps toe most fam- 
ous and admired contemporary A- 
merican poet. His works, an ex- 
tensive body of poetry and essays, 
have been translated into Italian, 
German, French, Spanish, Czech, 
Russian, Japanese and Hindu. 
Three complete volumes of po- 
etry have been relased in the Un- 
ited States and other poems are 
scattered among numerous little 
magazines that have since become 

Aside from being a poet, Gins- 
berg has become a public figure. 
His campaigns for civil rights, 
against toe war in Viet Nam, and 
his efforts to have toe use of 
marijuana legalized have thrust 
him into toe public eye as toe 
unpopular spokesman for contro- 
versial causes. For young pe- 
ople who can identify with him and 
toe ideas of freedom he expouses, 
he has become a hero. This is 
especially so in lands he has 
visited where authority is oppres- 
sive to toe point of suffocation, 
like in Czechoslovakia where his 
successful rapport with and in- 
fluence on students were so sub- 
stantial, he was ultimately expelled 
from toe country. 

Recently, his intensified efforts 
to have toe use of marijuana leg- 
alized and his stand supporting 
Timothy Leary, toe ex-Harvard 
professor who was sentenced to 30 
years in prison for possession of 
marijuana, have brought Ginsberg 
more than ever into toe public eye. 

He approves of LSD because he 
has used it and has found it a 
preferred method of obtaining new 
and different experiences. He 
sees toe drug as a valid mind-ex- 
panding apparatus. Of LSD and 
marijuana, he says he rarely uses 
them but belives that "if I want 
to take them, I should have toe 
right to." It is for this concept 
of freedom, the freedom to choose 
and experiment that Ginsberg is 
fighting. He believes that pro- 
hibiting LSD and marijuana is toe 
action of a police state. "We 
are become a police state, no dif- 
ferent from East Europe." 

So much emphasis is placed on 
Ginsberg's involvement in civil 
rights, his opposition to toe war 
in Viet Nam and his unrelenting 
efforts for toe Legalization of 
marijuana, that his actual poetry 
and writing seem to have become 
almost secondary. But Ginsberg 
is always writing and a huge stack 
of notebooks containing his ideas 
and dreams becomes higher and 
higher with toe months . His 
output of poetry and essays is 
amazingly prolific which em- 
phasizes an important fact: Gins- 

berg is primarily and foremost a 
writer. He is daily in contact, 
by phone or by visits with lit- 
erary figures, with toe world of 
authors and publishers. 

He constantly gives poetry read- 
ings, mostly at colleges where he 
puts forth his views for accep- 
tance by toe young. Recently he 
gave a reading with other poets at 
New York University's Loeb Stud- 
ent Center where several hundred 
young people and numerous faculty 
members crowded into the Eisner 
and Lubin Auditorium to hear him 
read his poems about toe war in 
Viet Nam. 

Weekly Newspapers 
Endorse Post Office 
Corporation Plan 

A spokesman for weekly 
newspapers told the House 
Post Office Committee in 
Washington, that he accepts 
the need for postal rate in- 
creases but they must be ac- 
companied by reform such as 
the Administration's proposal 
to turn the post office into a 
government corporation. 

Jack Lough, Albion, Neb., 
and president of the National 
Newspaper Association said 
that his members realize "con- 
version of the post office de- 
partment to a corporation will 
mean an increase in what they 
pay for delivery of their news- 

"But rate increases, with- 
out reorganization, are inevi- 
table," he said, and "the result 
will have to be higher and 
higher rates for poorer and 
poorer service." 

The NNA represents 7,000 
newspapers the bulk of them 
weeklies. Lough is publisher of 
two weekly papers, The Albion 
News and The Cedar County 
News at Hartington, Neb. 

The NNA voted recently to 
support the Administration's 
proposal to remove the post 
office from the Cabinet, oper- 
ate it as a corporation under 
a nine-member board of direc- 
tors and set up a separate 
board to adjust postal rates 
subject to Congressional re- 

Lough warned, however, 
against any attempt to weaken 
the self -management proposals

Can We Afford to Study the Problem Much Longer? 

By John Stauros 

(Editor's note: The information 
in this article was gathered from 
a series of interviews held with 
p )rsons representing each are *" 
covered in the study.) 

A young coupla walked into the 
Off-Campus Housing Office yes- 
terday to look for an apartment 
for the fall semester. The young 
mail said he was an under^viJ- 
uate, and he wouldn't have much 
to spend for housing. His wife 
looked tired and about eight months 
along, one reason he wouldn't be 
able to afford to spend too much. 

The answer wis the same f">r 
them as it had been and would 
be for hundreds of couples, non- 
professional employees, under - 
graduates and graduate students, 
"It's very difficult to find any in- 
expensive housing in the area sir. 
Your going to have to pay at least 
$125 a month for a small place. 
Of course, that's if you can find 
a place at aT." 

The housing situation in Am- 
herst for the new school year is 
serious now, and will become cri- 
tical in the near future. The 
University along with the other 
colleges in the araa ar* constantly 
increasing enrollments and staff, 
landlords are doing the same to 
their rents and both are creating 
a scarsity of desirable housing. 

Further study of the matter 
paints en evj.i blaiker outlook 
vhen it is realized that at the 
present, the University has no 
specific plans to alleviate the sit- 
uation, and the town is concerned 
but is doing next to nothing. It 
Li il ;o unlikely that outside sour- 
ces such as businessmen or non- 
profit organizations will be able to 
help , for low income housing in 
the present economic picture is 
economical!! ? unsound. F::o:n each 
point on this five pronged axis 
the problem is being studied in 
varying degree. The town, bus- 
iness community, students, faculty 
and townspeople are ill work' irj 
for a soluiin, all working against 
each other. 


The University of Massachusetts 
has a commitment to the state to 
enroll 1500 new students each year. 
When these students are enrolled 
it is always unknown how many 
will look for off- campus housing. 

At the present the University 
enrolls 1300 plus students at Am- 
herst and has a capacitv to house 
10,679. With the opening of the 
new Northeast Area in Sept. 1970 
this capacity will rise to 12,083, 
a figure that does not success- 
fully compliment the projected en- 
rollment. It has been estimated 

that there are 1000 married stu- 
dents and faculty, presently eli- 
gible for the University's 104 a- 
partment units, and 6,000 students 
who are not, seeking off- campus 

Each year from 1964 to 1968 
there was new housing available 
in the fall semester and this also 
applies for the fall of 1970. After 
1970 there is nothing planned, and 
with the present construction rates 
it would be at least the fall of 72 
before anything would be avail- 
able. At that time projection 
figures for the University exceed 
an enrollment of 21,500. 

For those interested in the near 
future there will be at least 600 
if not more triples assigned this 
fall, one of the highest numbers 
ever, as there are still close to 
500 students without room assign- 
ments. From figures of the last 
two years, 505 undergraduate cou- 
ples attending in 68 and 716 in 69, 
it is also projected that 924 un- 
dergraduate couples will attend the 
University this fall. This figure 
excludes graduate marrieds and 
faculty, raising the University a- 
partment demand by undergradu- 
ates alone. 50% in one year. 

The University does however 
have a moral commitment in this 
respect, vague as it is, by supply- 
ing up to date listings of aU a- 
vailable housing in the area. The 
lisiting is done through the Off- 
Campus Housing Office which has 
no power to protest rents or in- 
fractions in fair housing laws ex- 
cept by refusal to list landlords 
committing these infractions. This 
power is used only when the land- 
lord is considered lacking all his 
mental faculties, or practices ra- 
cial discrimination in renting pro- 
cedure. Frequent andoverzealous 
rent increases are not blacklisted 
by the office, as it would cut the 
listings down to a noticeably smal- 
ler number. 

It is realized that the University 
is not attempting to avoid the is- 
sue. Last spring, after an open 
letter from the Graduate Student 
Senate sub- committee was sent to 
over 100 school newspapers across 
the nation, the University began to 
move. In essence, the letter warn- 
ed students interested in the Uni- 
versity what the housing situation 
was in Amherst. It concluded 
that if one were thinking of at- 
tending the University and would 
not want to. or be able to live 
in a dorm, then he would be rich 
or forget about applying. 

The incident, which ruffled a 
few administrative feathers, 're- 
sulted in the creation of the Uni- 
versity Committee on Housing. 

This body is meeting once every 
one or two months in attempting 
to seek a solution. 

The committee along with the 
University Planning Office face 
several problems at the onset of 
this study. Primarily a large 
roercentaee of students no longer 
want to live in dormitories. Upon 

realizing this fact three years ago, 
the new northeast area was de- 
signed as a possible solution to 
the problem. The dormitories 
are being constructed with suite 
layouts; bedroom, living room and 
private bath, to accommodate se- 
veral students per room. How- 
ever, this experiment in housing 
may or may not be successful and 
the results will come in, at the 
earliest a year and a half from 
now. This is much to late for 
consideration of results, and pro- 
posal of new action to alleviate 
the present and future shortages. 

The committee is also faced 
with the fact that apartments sim- 
ilar to Lincoln Apartments, the 
University married and faculty 
housing, cannot be built today at 
a cost that would allow them to 
remain as financially operable, 
low-cost housing units. Construc- 
tion costs, and statebuilding codes, 
which call for high standards in 
state housing, are the reasons for 
this economic roadblock. 

This leaves the University with 
the task of producing a financi- 
ally feasible, and yet totally dif- 
ferent concept of housing, pro- 
viding the University considers 
itself to have a moral obligation 
to provide housing for all students 
it accepts. 


The town, meaning the govern- 
ing bodies of Amherst, have, one 
would think, a great deal involved 
in this issue. Although there have 
always been rather strained re- 
lations between the University 
community and the Amherst com- 
munity, the University is a vital 
part of Amherst, no matter what 
some Amherst residents might 
say if asked. 

The University compensates the 
town for the use of its non-tax- 
able Droooertv through direct ap- 
propriation and employs many pro- 
fessional and non - professional 
people, creating tax resources. 
Students and all University em- 
ployees are also responsible for 
the existance of many of the local 
businesses. A town of 8,000, an 
estimate excluding University af- 
filiated people, does not provide 
income for at least 4 shoe stores, 

5 clothing stores, 3 television 
shops, 5 dry cleaning establish- 
ments, 13 restaurants or take out 
places, 3 drug stores and innum- 
erable other businesses. This 
does not include the fine educa- 
tional system that was built in 
Amherst under great influence 
from the academic community to 
serve all levels of students. 

The University and the town of 

. Amherst are intertwined in a vast- 
ly complicated economic web, and 
no matter how hard some towns- 
people hope, the University will 
not disappear. 

Despite all this involvement, 
actions of the town demonstrate 
it does not believe there is any 



type of housing problem in the 
area. It has been stated by Am- 
herst authorities that over a 1000 
building permits for housing a- 
lone have been issued for future 

housing, to alleviate the problem if 
it did exist. The permits are 
mostly for homes which one would 
consider far from low income or 
even reasonable housing for stu- 
dents and non-professional help. 
Amherst also has a housing 
committee which was formed sev- 
eral years ago to manage the 
town's low- cost housing for the 
elderly on East Pleasant St. and 
to keep channels open to the state 
and federal governments if more 
funding is needed. At the present 
this committee has reluctantly de- 
cided to hear a state official 
speak on the prospect of low in- 
come housing and is very far from 
any serious consideration of the 

The town also greatly opposes 
two possible solutions to the mat- 
ter. First, new trailerpark sites 
are not allowed in Amherst, while 
there is a definite demand for this 
type of property and there are 
landowners who would open prop- 
erty for this purpose. Second, 
is town opposition to actual con- 
struction of low cost housing. Am- 
herst is concerned that the con- 

Photos left & right by Lowell f 

struction oi inis type of housing 
would be detrimental to the aes- 
thetic beauty of the town. 

On the non-official level, there 
are two committees of private 
citizens in Amherst concerned with 
non-profit low income housing con- 
struction. On e committee how- 
ever, is merely functioning to ad- 
vise people interested in building 
this type of housing, while the other 
group is interested in the actual 
construction. The second commit- 
tee is far from the actual con- 
struction stage, and has yet to 
meet the opposition it will meet 
wVn definite action is begun. 


It has always been the custom of 
the disheartened tenant or frus- 
trated perspective tenant to vent 
his frustration of the landlord. 
This is often justifiable action, 
but in the specific area concern- 
ing low income housing, the land- 
lords are not responsible. 

It is a fact that our society is 
based on the capitalistic economy 

which relies on the concept of 
private enterprise. Businessmen, 
specifically landlords are only go- 
ing to build and lease for a profit. 
Few landlords feel this responsi- 
bility is more than a business 
deal, with services rendered and 

profit made. Therefor, there is 
no moral obligation to provide 
housing to alleviate the situation, 
nor should there be in our current 
economic system. Low income 
housing would be fought to the 
hilt by businessmen realizing the 
effects this could have on the 

housing supply and demand situa- 
tion in Amherst. 

This is by all means a greatly 
cut and dried view of this situa- 
tion, but landlords simply have 
no one to answer to if they are 
providing services of maintainance 
and fair rental. Rents, which are 
another problem directly affiliated 

with the housing shortage, will 
continue to increase because there 
is no competition in the housing 
market. It is also unlikely there 
will ever be any proof of often sug- 
gested rent fixing, and proposed 
rent control programs, such as 
in the Harvard University Com- 
munity, will be opposed greatly 

by the controlling powers in the 

The Amherst businessmen have 
a phrase which summarizes the 
position of the business commun- 
ity, ' ' Anything can be done if the 
market will bear it." If there 
is no competition or the immense 
demand for available housing con- 
tinues, and vague reasons for rent 
increases are used, the market will 
bear anything! If proof of this 
is desired, observe the rent in- 
creases and structuring that will 
be taking place in the next three 


The prime responsibility for 
this problem lies first with the 
University and next with the town. 

In its role as an institution of 
higher learning the school is caught 
in a demand to provide quality 
education for an increasing num- 
ber of students . Granted there 
is a lack of finance, but this is 
no excuse for lack of planning, and 
then definite action to acquire 
funds . Housing should come sec- 
ond in priority to quality educa- 
tion. The University Committee 
on Housing has before it an im- 
mense task, and at the present 
is acting as if it were planning a 
church picnic. 

The question concerning the is- 
sue of whether the University has 
a moral obligation to house, can 
only be answered with a definite, 
yes. How can a university pro- 
vide quality education without pro- 
viding places for some people to 
stay while they are attempting to 
get this education? In this re- 
spect, the University is practic- 
ing a type of discrimination. 
Providing to all accepted the same 
type schooling, it is discriminating 
against the married, and increas- 
ingly against the low income stud- 
ent, by not giving them equal op- 
portunities for housing. 

At the same time the town of 
Amherst is making the Univer- 
sity's position extremely difficult. 
In concern for the aesthetics of 
the town by the conservative pow- 
ers in the area, it is in many 
respects threatening the growth 
and further development of an al- 
ready powerful community in the 
state. Concern over the aesthe- 
tics of low income housing, easily 
controlled by proper planning, can 
keep Amherst from becoming one 
of the leading communities in the 
state, noted for its economic grow- 
th, foresight in housing matters, 
excellent use of resources, and 
effective government. 

Suggesting another committee 
staffed by members representing 
each area of the housing problem 
at first appears to be one means 
of attacking the problem. How- 
ever, there are at least six com- 
mittees functioning presently, and 
they all appear to be doing their 
best not to recognize each others 
existance. More committees would 
only appear to create more prob- 

The only apparent solution at the 
present involves competition. The 
University, and non-profit organ- 
izations interested in housing must 
build to alleviate the housing short- 
age, and to freeze the rents. At 
the same time, the Ami erst com- 
munity must also consider housing 
and provide full cooperation with 
the plans of the other groups. 

Perhaps, these are all sugges- 
tions that will not be considered 
until the situation becomes intol- 
erable. There will not be a long 
wait. Solution of this problem will 
be by no means simple, but co- 
operation will simplify the present 

Housing in Amherst is going to 
become one of the biggest Alba- 
tross the University and town have 
ever had around their necks, if 
definite action, instead of infinite 
discussion and study, is not taken 
by all concerned. Furthermore, if 
this action is not taken within the 
next six months, it will be too 
late to successfully solve the prob-

Moon Venture Changes 
History of Mankind 

For better or worse we have landed on the moon. The machines 
have been perfected, the men have been trained, the money has been 
spent. It is a voyage dreamed of for thousands of years. Tantaliz- 
ingly close, at least in cosmic terms, the moon has fascinated man- 
kind for as long as we can remember. 

Our language and literature are replete with reference to the bright 
beacon of the night. As early as 160 A.D. Lucian of Greece wrote of 
a flight to the moon. Hundreds of years later Dumas, Verne, Vol- 
taire, and Poe told tales of lunar travel. But the stories were just 
that. It was not until early in the Twentieth Century that Robert God- 
dard, Hermann Oberth, and Konstantin Tsiolkovsky independently laid 
the foundation for space travel. 

As is often the case, it took a war to get the young science of rock- 
etry on its feet. With Hitler's blessings Wernher von Braun and his 
compatriots of the German Society for Space Travel set up shop in 
Peenemunde and developed the V-2 rocket. The rockets' devastat- 
ing effect on London made sure missilery would never be ignored a- 
gain. After World War II von Braun and his group surrendered to the 
Americans, coming here to form the nucleus of what is now our space 

A different kind of war brought rocketry and space travel to big- 
time status. Cold War rivalries with Russia lead to the development of 
larger missiles to carry newly developed nuclear warheads. The 
Eisenhower Administration, however, placed low priority on the use 
of these missiles for space travel. A small military program was 
given limited funds to eventually launch a grapefruit-size satellite 
into earth orbit. 

The turning point came on Oct. 4, 1957 when Russia launched the 
first artificial satellite, Sputnik I, an event called a "technological 
Pearl Harbor" by Sen. Stuart Symington. The result was public up- 
roar, Congressional investigations, and a viable space program. The 
National Aeronautics and Space Administration was established July 
29, 1958 to peacefully explore space. 

Eisenhower, reluctantly moving under public pressure, approved 
Project Mercury to orbit a man around the earth and the development 
of 1.5 million pound thrust rocket. More ambitious proposals, such 
as a flight to the moon, were rejected. Soon after, John F. Kennedy 
became president and almost immediately he was beset by crisis. 
The abortive Bay of Pigs invasion sent national prestige to a low 

Then, on April 12, 1961, the Russians launched the late Yuri Ga- 
garin into immortality as the first human to travel in outer space. 
In a series of conferences Kennedy decided the U.S. must challenge 
Soviet superiority in space. Accepting recommendations for an en- 
larged space program, Kennedy went before Congress on May 25, 
1961 and asked that America put men on the moon and return them 
safely before the end of the decade. 

"No single space project in this period will be more impressive 
to mankind, or more important for the long-range exploration of 
space," he said. Now eight years and $24 billion later. Astronauts 
Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Edwin (Buzz) Aldrin have ac- 
complished that goal. While some back on earth debate the wisdom 
of the trip, there is no doubt mankind will never be the same.

Damage Deposits 

To the Editor: 
The purpose of this letter is 
make a complaint about a sub- 
ct, most likely, you are thor- 
lgfily acquainted with. It con- 
a certain facet of realtor 
actices; namely, damage de- 

It is, a justifiable procedure of 
i realtor to require a damage de- 
sit from his tenants. He has 
he right to insure that reason- 
are is taken with his prop- 
But what does he do with 
loney in the meantime? He 
your money as a damage de- 
osit, invests it, and he keeps the 
'eve ue that accrues on it. What 
an tenant do about it; rent from 
someone else? Most every real- 
requires a deposit; the only 
variance is with the amount. None 
' them give you any interest on 
their" investment. So, in prac- 
vou cannot avoid this proce- 
• e. 

Second, less scrupulous realtors

ur deposit. They call these de- 
ductions reasonable for cleaning 
and damage purposes, when in fact 
they are not. No one will take 
a landlord to court for ten dol- 
lars. What happens, however, when 
the landlord has three hundred 
units, and deducts ten dollars from 
each? What occurs is that the 
realtor has tapped a profitable 
source of fraudulent income. 

I have lived in the Amherst 
area, where this problem seems 
to be most prevalent. A copy of 
this letter has been sent to a 
number of authoritative sources 
in that area, an*! to a number of

Viet Withdrawa 

To the Editor: 

In the July 10th issue Gen. Ralph 
Haynes was quoted by the College 
Press Service to the effect that 
if Pres. Nixonim mediately ordered 
a complete withdrawal of all US 
Forces in Viet Nam, it would take 
9 months using all available air 
and sea transport to effect mis 
withdrawal. Like many other 
things in this conflict, several fac- 
tors were overlooked by the Com- 
mander of the US Forces in the 
Pacific in his analysis. 

A plan to effect this withdrawal 
in under, substantially under, nine 
months is only a matter of common 

1. The vast bulk of US forces 
in Viet Nam would be flown out 
via requisitioned commercial air- 
craft, with the remaining require- 
ment being met by the Military 
Airlift Command. 

2. Logistic Support troops and 
transportable equipment in I and 
n Corps would convoy out of Viet 
Nam on the hard-surface all- 
weather French Colonial Routes 
19, 12, 6, and 5 through Cambodia 
to Bangkok. (As Gen. Haynes 
knows, we have re -established dip- 
lomatic contact with the Kmer's). 

3. Logistic Support troops and 
transportable equipment in HI and 
IV Corps would convoy out via 
Routes 1 and 5 to Bangkok.

Do you know what the initials 
S.E.M.U. stand for? 

If you're a Massachusetts tax- 
per, you should, because you're 
financing SEMU with your tax dol- 

But, then, you supported it for 
six years as SMTI and you prob- 
ably didn't know what that was, 

SEMU, which to most Bay State 
residents is a mystery, is really 
Massachusetts' latest state-finan- 
ced "university." 

THE NEW NAME is South Ea- 
stern Massachusetts University 
(presumably "south eastern" was 
split so the initials wouldn't come 
out SMU). 

It is a university by fiat - by 
mandate of the legislature - ra- 
ther than in fact. 

Until three weeks ago, SEMU 
was SMTI, or Southeastern Mas- 
sachusetts Technological Insti- 

It is a fairly good institution 
of some 3000 students, mostly 
commuters, located at South Dart- 
mouth in the Fall River-New Bed- 
ford area. 

But even some of the faculty and 
administration are embarrassed 
by the name "university.' 

Gov. Sargent himself, who sign- 
ed the name-change bill right after 
SMTI's last commencement in June 
(at which he spoke) was some- 
what apologetic about his act - 
though not to the many voters in 
the Fall River-New Bedford area. 

YOU MAY ASK what difference 
does it make? It probably created 
some warm feeling among people 

Senate majority leader Kevin 
B. Harrington of Salem, who was 
presiding in the Senate when the 
SEMU bill passed, is a witty fel- 

low but it is suspected he did not 
let this legislation go through for 
a laugh. 

His own bill to separate Salem 
and Boston State Colleges from the 
state college system (with the ex- 
pected purpose of having them be- 
come "universities eventually) 
was defeated last spring by a 
22 to 1 vote. 

With the successful SEMU bill 
as a foot in the door, it is fore- 
seen that at least Salem State will 
continue to make bids for a sep- 
arate board and eventual univer- 
sity status. 

Ironically, this means that the 
orderly Willis-Harrington Act 
structure for Massachusetts pub- 
lic higher education, which Sen. 
Harrington helped build, could fall 

SOME PEOPLE at Boston State 
(though not its president, Dr. John 
J. O'Neill) still hope to develop 
it into a university rivalling 
UM ass -Boston, for which a $400 
million campus is projected at 
Columbia Point. 

There are others who would like 
to see Bridgewater and Westfield 
State Colleges separated from the 
state college system - and after 
that anything could happen. 

A bill was passed by this leg- 
islature to study the possible mer- 
ger of Lowell State College and 
Lowell Technological Institute. 
Such a blending could also - with 
SEMU's example - become a uni- 

What this means is that Mass- 
achusetts could end up, if all the 
local pressures are satisfied, with 
six or eight universities - plus 
all the financial consequences and 
educational diluting implied. 

This is why the Massachusetts 
Board of higher Education, charg- 
ed with coordinating the state's 
29 Institutions of public higher ed- 

ucation, opposed (though unsuc- 
cessfully) the SEMU image-alter- 
ing bill. 

Even the University of Massa- 
chusetts where, under the Willis- 
Harrington Act, the major grad- 
uate-study programs of the state 
are supposed to be located, has 
had serious budget cuts this year 
on Beacon Hill. 

IF THE STATE is having a 
hard time maintaining quality 
graduate-school education (the 
hallmark of a university) at one 
university, UMass, what would 
happen with a half dozen so-called 

UMass itself conferred 299 mas- 
ters degrees and 48 doctoral de- 
grees at last month's commence- 

South Eastern Massachusetts 
University (the new title) had only 
nine masters degree candidates 
and supports no doctoral pro- 

In comparison, Boston State had 
198 masters degree candidates; rid 
Lowell Tech 31 masters and two 
doctoral degrees. 

Thus the "U" in SEMU is more 
a hope than a reality. 

If Massachusetts doesn't back 
the university name with money, 
then SEMU is a fraud upon south- 
eastern Massachusetts and the 
young people earning its degrees. 

But if the state supports SEMU 
with tax money to the detriment 
of the rest of the Commonwealth, 
then it's a fraud upon the major- 
ity of taxpayers. 

RIGHT NOW, about 1440 young 
people from southeastern Massa- 
chusetts go to UMass, about half 
the number who go to SEMU, so 
their needs must be considered, 
too. ' 


A majority of college students 
are deeply committed to making 
the world a better place in which 
to live, and the best way for the 
federal government to end campus 
disorders, a product of this com- 
mittment, lies not in passing re- 
pressive legislation, but in cor- 
recting the ills of society. 

These are the findings of a 
five - man Congressional study 
team on campus disorders, which 
filed a report with Congress last 

Led by Congressmen Donald W. 
Reigle (R-Mich) and Paul L. Pet- 
tis (R- Calif), the Commission 
states that most students on most 
campuses can be listed in four 
major groups: extremists, radi- 
cals, moderates, and the uninvol- 

Extremists, the Commission 
says, make up less than one per- 
cent of the average campus pop- 
ualtion and are, the report states, 
dedicated to revolution. 

Radicals, according to the com- 
mission report, comprise a much 
larger segment of the campus 
population, about 15% , and are 
motivated to change and improve 
the "American system", rather 
than to tear it down, as the ex- 
tremists are. Radicals are in 
favor of using various means of 
civil disobediance - sit-ins and 
building takeovers - to illustrate 
their committment. 

Radicals feel, the study reports, 
that it is necessary to work out- 
side of the existing system be- 
cause of the corruption with in 
the system. 

Campus moderates, the study 
states, share most of the same 
feelings as radicals. They seek 
a similar society, but generally 
frown upon many o I the radical 
tactics. However, the report goes 
on to say, they often "teeter on 
a razor's edge and radicalize on 
certain issues as they become 
frustrated by the government's 
lack of response to their griev- 

Together, radicals and moder- 
ates comprise a majority of to- 
day's campus population. 

The remainder of the students, 
the reports explains, are unin- 
volved with anything beyond their 
personal success, and are inter- 
ested only with obtaining career 
training. This group, which has 
been dwindling rapidly in the last 
three years, is disliked by the other 
three groups, the Commission re- 

The report goes on to outline 
the basic frustratons which plague 
college students, and which turn 
moderates into radicals when gov- 
ernment agencies ignore student 
pleas for action. 

The major frustrations are 
headed by Vietnam, the war which 
most college students, the report 
says, feel to "be illogical, mor- 
ally wrong, and generally abhor- 
ent," Students see elements of 

society which they dislike— the 
military and big business— as par- 
tially responsible for the war, the 
commission explains. 

Students are also concerned with 
national priorities. The reports 
explains, "Students want to know 
why going to the moon is more 
important than ending poverty, and 
why military spending is more im- 
portant than educational spend- 

The American legal system, 
"which makes no distinction be- 
tween a war-resister and a fellon 
is a constant irritation to many 

The Commission reports that 
there is one great, overriding con- 
cern which most all students hold. 
"This is a preoccupation with find- 
ing a truly human set of values." 

"Students have been 'turned off' 
by our society and its arjoarent 
lack of morality, and they seek 
to find a better way of life for 

Students see their schools as 
microcosims of society, the re- 
port says, and it is natural for 
them to try to change their cam- 
puses as they wish to change the 

"The way to end campus vio- 
lence, " Rep. Reigle explains, 
"is to provide students with active 
government programs which are 
responsive to their just griev- 
, ences." 

He goes on to say, "We must 
give pressing thought to our order 
of priorities. . .we must give ser- 
ious consideration to student de- 
mands for draft reform, tax re- 
form, congressional reform, rac- 
ism, and poverty." 

Reigle admits that, before he 
undertook this investigation, "I 
didn't really appreciate the deep 
feeling and the wide-spread sen- 
timent among the students, and how 
many students really were com- 
mitted to seeking a better world." 

"The worst thing Congress can 
do," the Michigan law-maker con- 
cludes, "is to pass repressive le- 
gislation. . .this will only serve 
to prove to students that we are 
their enemies. . .and we must 
show them that we can and will 
work together." 

Prior, to serving on this com- 
mission. Riegle voted for one such 
repressive bill, one which would 
deprive student demonstrators of 
federal aide. 

Another Education Resignation 

George J. Collins, assistant commissioner of education, has resigned 
after three years in his $20,000 a year job because, he said, Massa- 
chusetts is no longer serious about education." 

Collins, responsible for more than $100 million in school construction 
and for hundreds of millions more now in the planning stage, blasted 
the budget bureau and the state Legislature for penny pinching. 

After three years of working with no pay raise and what he called 
"an inadequate staff," Collins said he will choose between two attract- 
ive and better paying positions. 

Commr. Neil V. Sullivan termed Collins' resignation another example 
of the state's inability to keep qualified personnel in the education

A call for the anti-war action 
is now being circulated to cam-

licly for the first time yesterday

came at this moment to dispel 
rumors that the group was plan-

and to put President Nixon on 
notice of possible student reactions 
if the fighting continued unabated. 

The committee hopes to expand 
the Oct. 15th moratorium to two 
days in November, three days in 
December and so on until the war 
is brought to an end. 

The planned protest would differ 
from past student anti- war demon- 
strations in its emphasis on the 
involvement of more than just the 
academic community. The com- 
mittee hopes to engage community 
organizations, churches, profess- 
ional groups, labor union locals, 
civil rights groups, politicians and 
even high school students in the 

Participating student and faculty 
members are urged to branch out 
from campuses on Oct. 15, to cir-

by Sam Brown, a staff aide to 
Sen. Eugene McCarthy last year, 
and now a fellow of the Institute 
of Politics at Harvard; David Mix- 
ner, another McCarthy staffer 
from last year who is now on the 
McGovern Commission for Reform 
of the Democratic Party, and Da- 
vid Hawk, a draft resister who 
organized the 250 student presi- 
dents and editors "We Won't Go"

its plans for the Fall term.

Full Text of Moratorium Call 

(Here is the text of the Vietnam moratorium call to take place 
next Oct. 15, at colleges and universities around the country. 
The statement has already been signed by campus enwspaper 
editors and class presidents from almost 100 colleges:) 

Ending the war in Vietnam is the most important task facing 
the American nation. Over the last few years, millions of Ameri- 
cans have campaigned, protested and demonstrated against the war. 
Few now defend the war, yet it continues. Death and destruction 
are unabated. Bombs and fire continue to devastate South Vietnam. 
Billions of dollars are spent on war while the urgent domestic 
problems of this country remain unattended. Moreover, the war 
has had a corrupting influence on every aspect of American life 
and much of the national discontent can be traced to its influence. 

Discredited policies of the past which have brought about this 
American tragedy have not yet changed. We follow the same mili- 
tary advice which has created a futile and bloody conflict while we 
cling to the same policy which has caused the Paris negotiations 
to falter. The token displacement of 25,000 troops over a three- 
month period is simply not the substantial change of policy that is 
so desperately needed. 

Thus it is necessary for all those who desire peace to again be- 
come active and so bring pressure to bear on the present adminis- 

We call for a periodic moratorium on "business 1 as usual" in 
order that students, faculty members and concerned citizens can 
devote time and energy to the important work of taking tne issue 
of peace in Vietnam to the larger community. 

If the war continues this Fall and there is no firm commitment 
to an American withdrawal or a negotiated settlement on Oct. 15, 
participating members of the academic community will spend the 
entire day organizing against the war and working in the community 
to ge t others to join us in an enlarged and lengthened moratorium 
in November. This process will continue until there is an Ameri- 
can withdrawal or a negotiated settlement. 

We call upon our universities to support the moratorium and we 
commit ourselves to organize this effort on our campus and in our 
communities. We ask others to join us. 


Close-up of the University of Massachusetts dig in Gill shows two students working by hand 
at the right. Area at left illustrates how earth is carefully removed from around archaeolog- 
ical features, leaving each one standing on its own stack of dirt. Signs of circular pit dwell- 
ings and stone artifacts were found, traces of a people who lived in the area between 1500 and 
2000 B.C. 

UMass Explorers Hunt Early Culture 

"They were a typically impov- 
erished people, hunters and ga- 
therers, probably migratory along 
the rivers, with minimal culture 
or religion." 

UMass archaeologist John Blank 
is speaking of some very early 
Connecticut Valley residents-- a 
people who lived around 1500 to 
2000 B.C. They have yielded some 
traces of their history through ex- 
cavations just completed in the 
town of Gill by the UMass Ar- 
chaeology Field School. 

Blank, a graduate student from 
Cleveland, Ohio, led a group of 
20 undergraduates from the Un- 
iversity and Mount Holyoke College 
in six weeks of painstaking dig- 
ging and gathering artifacts at a 
sandy ridge on property of Ken- 
dall Knapp in Gill near the falls 
of the Connecticut River. Ini- 
tially, six site possibilities were 
chosen on the basis of likely- 
looking terrain and artifacts found 
at the surface; the Gill site ap- 
peared to be the best of the six. 
"We excavated two areas about 
40 by 40 feet each to a depth of 
from five to six feet," Blank ex- 
plained. Digging was done ini- 
tially with shovels, then with trow- 
els, paintbrushes, and dental picks. 

"They were an early hunting 
culture who lived before the dis- 
covery of pottery," said Blank. 
As a result the artifacts at the 
site are all stone-- projectile 
points, hammer stones, some 
fragments of bowls made from 
talc or soapstone and chips left 
from the manufacture of instru- 

Traces of circular, dugout-type 
dwellings were also found. These 
houses apparently were 18 to 20- 
foot circles, with a ring of posts 
holding a roof covering a pit five 
or six feet deep. A hole in the 
center full of rocks was probably 
a central fireplace. Blank believes. 

The UMass crew established the 
outlines of the dwellings by a care- 
ful interpretation of such signs as 
discoloration caused by organic 

matter, which marked the floors of 
the dwellings; post moulds or areas 
in the sand where the posts once 
stood and long since decayed; and 
cracking of stones by fires. 

The area was not particularly 
rich in artifacts nor did it result 
in any real new discoveries, ac- 
cording to Blank. On the other 
hand, he added, "So little archa- 
eological work has been done in 
the Connecticut Valley that almost 
anything you do here is a dis-

ches, islands, streams and deltas 
along the central Alaskan coast is 
expected to add materially to know- 
ledge of how the New England coast 
was formed. The UMass group 
has been studying beaches, es- 
tuaries and islands on the New 
England coast from Cape Cod to 
southern Maine for the past four 

The expedition is headed by the 
director of the UMass coastal 
geology program, associate pro- 
fessor Miles O. Hayes, and is 
supported by the U.S. Office of 
Naval Research. With Hayes will 
be five geology students: Jon C. 
Boothroyd of Laconia, N.H.; Stew- 
art C. Farrell of Deal, N.J.; Rob- 
ert L. Henry of Newton; Eugene G. 
Rhodes of Montague; and Dennis 
M. Wilkins of Greenfield. AU 
except Henry and Wilkins are grad- 
uate students. 

The UMass group will work 
along a 300-mile stretch of empty 
coastline where glaciers come 
close to the sea. 

Some members of the group left 
early to drive vehicles across the 
U.S. and up the Alaskan highway. 
The last member to arrive will be 

Dr. Hayes, who left June 30 by 
air for Alaska. The expedition 
planned to take to the field Tues- 
day, after most of the floating ice 
has left the coastal areas. 

The expedition will concentrate 
on three major study areas. One 
will be a study of the Copper Riv- 
er delta and the islands at its 
mouth, a situation geologically an- 
alogous to two areas on the New 
England coast - Plum Island at the 
mouth of the Merrimack River es- 
tuary and Wells Beach in Maine. 

A second area of study will be 
so-called braided streams along 
the Alaskan coast. These are 
rivers that run from melting gla- 
ciers to the coast in wide deltas 
with many small rivulets inter- 
twined like the fraying end of a 
rope. UMass geologists believe 
that some New England estuaries 
began life as braided streams. 
They will study how the Alaskan 
streams form and how they are 
affected by a marine environment. 

The third area will be a gen- 
eral survey of the geological char- 
acter of the area and studies of 
the beaches. Once again, the idea 
is to go back in geological time - 
to observe events as they are hap- 
pening in order to better under- 
stand the events that happened 
thousands of years ago in New 
England. A special look will be 
taken at the effects of the 1964 
Alaskan earthquake, which raised 
some beaches as much as 14 feet. 

The expedition plans to spend 
two full months in the field, com- 
ing out Sept. 1.

A two-year associate degree program in wood products technology 
and an extension service for wood-usingcompanies in Massachusetts 
have been established by Mount Wachusett Community College in 
Gardner through a Commonwealth Technical Resource Service (COM- 
TECH) grant and the forestry department at UMass. 

The alumni of Amherst College gave their alma mater a solid 
vote of confidence this week when it was announced that the Alumni 
Fund had reached an all-time high this year of $658,177. Although 
the participation rate for the Fund, 54.8% dropped about one per- 
centage point from last year, the Fund exceeded its dollar goal of 
$625,000 by $3^,000. It topped last year's final figure, $598,133, by 

approximately $60,000, a 10% increase.

A UMass professor has donated a collection of medical books to 
a Malawi hospital now in the process of developing the only medical 
library in that Central African nation. It is the third set of books 
donated to the nation through the University in two years. 

Dr. Stephen I. Allen, UMass associate professor of mathematics, 
donated the books from the estate of his late father, Dr. Fred Allen 
of Holyoke. "My father was always interested in the improvement of 
medical facilities in underdeveloped nations, and these books will 

serve that purpose well," Prof. Allen said.

An unusual research grant is allowing UMa^s students to study 
mamalian reproduction with the benefit of sophisticated research 
equipment and an interdisciplinary faculty. 

Members of the biochemistry, chemistry, and veterinary and ani- 
mal sciences departments, utilizing a Health, Education, and Welfare 
department grant of $48,000, have begun to work with a small group 
of students on all phases of reproduction physiology in mammals. 

Under the direction of Dr. Donald L. Black, veterinary and animal 
science professor, the program touches on all aspects of reproduc- 
tion, including hormone structure and function in various mala and fe- 
male mamma's plus contraception in humans. 

Teachers Spend Summer 
A t Conn. River Basin 

AMHERST, Mass - The Con- 
necticut River basin is a labor- 
atory this summer for a UMass 
study of water pollution problems. 

The students are the 21 junior 
and senior high school teachers 
at the Summer Institute for the 
Study of Water Pollution Control 
at the University Institute of Ag- 
ricultural and Industrial Microbi- 

They are studying the Connec- 
ticut and its tributaries from Ver- 
mont to Connecticut, split up into 
seven teams of three members 
each, each team assigned a section 
of the river. Their study in- 
volves not only the biological, 
chemical and engineering aspects 
of pollution but also the political 
and economic aspects. 

The teachers are at the Univer- 
sity for a six -week course designed 
to help them teach science classes 
about water pollution control prob- 
lems. The institute is directed by 
Warren Litsky and Leverne J. 
Ihelen and supported by a grant 

from the Federal Water Pollution 
Control Administration. 

The group has spent the first four 
weeks of the institute in classroom 
study; the field work is designed to 
relate this to practical aspects of 
pollution control. The field work 
will run through Aug. 1. 

The assigned areas include such 
major Connecticut River tribu- 
taries as the Millers River, Deer - 
field River, Chicopee River, and 
Westfleld River. Teams working 
on the northern sector of the river 
will use laboratories at the UMass 
Amherst campus; those to the 
south will use a mobile laboratory 
furnished by the Federal Water 
Pollution Control Administration. 
It will be located at Bondi's Is- 
land, West Springfield. 

A UMass student needs a 
ride to campus from Chicopee 
each day, Monday through Fri- 
day, before 9:15 and back any- 
time in the afternoon. Anyone 
able to help call Bill Weslos- 
ki, 131 Shepard St., Chicopee, 
Mass., 533-8275. 

Amherst Group Suggests Creation of College Legislature 

The Amherst College Summer 
Commission, established to con- 
sider the future of the College as 
a result of the April moratorium 
on classes, convened shortly after 
Commencement and has recently 
issued an interim report. 

The Commission will reconvene 
on July 25-26 to establish a time- 
table for meetings during the re- 
mainder of the summer and will 
hope to have a final report a- 
vailable when the College reopens 
in mid-September. 

The interim report is broad in 
scope and does not propose to 
consider all elements with which 
the final reoort will be concerned. 
It does, however, suggest fairly 
definite steps in creating a new 
form of college governance. A- 
mong proposals advanced are: 

Creation of a College Legis- 
lature consisting of 24 faculty 
members, 24 students, and three 
administrators EX OFFICLTS (the 
Treasurer, the Dean of Students, 
and Dean of the Faculty). The 
President of the College would 
preside without vote. Among 
the student members, two would 
be freshmen, and at least two would 
be blacks.

Legislature committees would 
include: An Executive Committee 
(four students, four faculty mem- 
bers, the Presdient as chairman 
without vote, Treasurer, and Dean 
of the Faculty) which would ad- 
vise the President, establish the 
agenda for meetings of the Le- 
gislature, and send proposals re- 
ceived to the appropriate commit- 
tee. Other duties would include 
deciding which proposals require 
the attention of the faculty Com- 
mittee on Educational Policy, com- 
menting on committee reports be- 
fore they are transmitted to the 
Legislature, appointing members 
of other committees of the Legis- 
lature, and arranging meetings 
with other committees or individ- 
uals as the business of the Le- 
gislature requires. 

-A Committee on Priorities and 
Resources (three students, three 
members of the faculty, the Dean 
of the Faculty, Treasurer, Dir- 
ector of Development, and Pres- 
ident (as non-voting chairman) 
which wou|d make recommend- 
ations on all matters concerning 
budgetary planning, use of college 
facilities, and educational priori- 

-A Committee on General Rules 
of Conduct and Individual Rights 
(membership not yet proposed)

in such matters as "off-campus

employment, investments, tax sit- 
uation, and real estate holdings; 
the large social implications of 
work done on campus; recruiters; 
honorary degrees; regional plann- 
ing and environmental concerns; 
special events;" 

-Committee on Admissions and 
Scholarships (Dean of Admissions, 
Dean of Financial Aid, three stu- 
dents - one of whom is black, 
three faculty members) which will 
report on all proposals affecting 
the admission or scholarship pol- 
icies of the College. 

The report reserves to the fa- 
culty final authority over appoint- 
ment, promotion, and tenure, but 
urges each department to create 
a joint faculty- student committee 
to discuss all matters of depart- 
mental interest. Activities of the 
faculty committee on Educational 
Policy are also reviewed, as are 
the compositon and concerns of 
the Student Council and Freshman 
Council. If the non-academic em- 
ployees of the College so wish, 
the Commission recommends that 
a Staff Council be formed to con- 
sider rights, working conditions, 
terms of employment, and griev- 

It also suggests that the office 
of Ombudsman be created for the 
benefit of both students and mem- 
bers of the faculty. The ombuds- 
man, or critic, will act as a dis- 
interested receiver of complaints. 
He will insure direct and unin- 
hibited access to all levels of 
governance and administration for 
an individual member of the com- 
munity who has a grievance. 

On the place of the President 
and the Board of Trustees in the 
proposed form of governance, the 
report states: "Because the Pres- 
ident is alert to constituencies 
(trustees and alumni) who may 
have interests in legislative pro- 
posals and no continuing opportun- 
ity to be heard, and because we 
wish to give the President dis- 

cretion to force the reconsidera-

Boston's a Baseball City 
Record Crowds at Fenway ^ 

Daily Collegian Sports Editor 

BOSTON - This city is im - 
possible to figure. The whole 
country has gone crazy about foot- 
ball. But in Boston, the Patriots 
may be playing in the Boston 
Common, before a throng of two 
hippies and the Swiss Navy. Mean- 
while baseball is dying just about 
everywhere, but in Beantown, there 
were calls of protest to a local 
TV station because the Red Sox 
telecast was substituted for cov- 
erage of man landing on the moon. 

The Red Sox story, the team, 
its fans, its stadium and its city, 
has to be one of the great sports 
stories. The Red Sox will draw 
2,000,000 this season. It is not 
the pennant race, with the Sox 
still unable to see the Orioles in 
sight yet, although Red Sox fans 
insist that their heroes still can 
do it. It's probably not the stad- 
ium, Fenway Park, which in of- 
fering the closest view of action 
of any big league park, also offers 
parking for a few, traffic jams 
for many, and some of the worst 
food, this side of Commons 7. 
But Boston still troups on out 
to Fenway. This is still an ex- 
cellent baseball team. It is in 
fact comical to hear all these ama- 
teur experts say what a lousy year 
the Sox are having, when their pre- 
sent record is the best at this time 
in the season , for many years, 1967 

included. It just looks lousy when 
compared to the Bunyanesque pace 
of Baltimore. 

Four things have prevented the 
Red Sox from making things closer, 
and they simply are: catching as 
bad as Ted Kennedy's driving, in- 
juries to Mike Andrews that robbed 
the Hose of the services of one of 
the games best second baseman 
for an extended period, and in- 
juries to Jose Santiago and Jim 
Lonborg which have sidelined two 
of the best right hand hurlers. 

Don't blame Yastremszki, who 
if he continues his reported lousy 
hitting, will hit only about 48 home 
runs and knock in around 120 runs. 
Don't blame the front office for 
trading Hawk who isn't catcher 
or pitcher, two things that are 
sometimes absent around Fenway. 
Blame Joe Azcue. but after all 
the manager should have the brains 
to play an all-star of a year ago. 

The Sox will have as good a re- 
cord as they have had for a long 
time this season. It probably 
won't be good enought for a pen- 
nant. But don't kock the Sox. 
They have come a longway since 
the days of Roman Mejiias, Joe 
Christopher, Pumpsie Green, Ar- 
| nold Early, and Hal Kolstad. Be- 
' sides there will be 2,000,000 fan- 
atics on your head. 

Geno Cappalletti and ex- Pat, Larry Garron, the only two remaining original Patriots work out in 
the Stadium before Garron's retirement. 

UMass Baseball Ace John Kitchen

Swanson Cut as Rush Trims Squad 


The roster of the Boston Pat- 
riots, which must be cut to forty 
players by the beginning of the 
Pats official season, has been 
trimmed to 65 thus far, as more 
cuts were made this morning at 
the Pats camp. 

UMass might be particularly in- 
terested in the fact that Terry 
Swanson was among the players 
put on wavers this morning by 
the coaching staff. Swanson, a 
former punter for the Redmen, 
had been on the Pats squad for 
three years prior to his release. 

Commenting on this cut, Clive 
Rush, the Patriots new coach, sta- 
ted that with the 40 man roster it 
was very difficult to keep a player 
who would only be able to special- 
ize in kicking. He added that with 
the limited roster it would be 
necessary to find a "Cappelletti 
type player", who could play an- 
other position effectively and still 
be used in a specialty position. 

Gino Cappelletti, a ten year 
'atriot veteran, has been used as 
a receiver and field goal kicker, 
setting many A.F.L. scoring re- 
cords at these positions. 

Before practice this morning 

Coach Rush said he spoke to Swan- 

;on and Jim Vuono, a left offensive 

oa :k from Adams State, and noti- 

led them of the cuts. Rush also 

suggested the players report to the 

well Giants, a Patriot fam team 

In Lowell, Mass, if they were not 

ked up on waivers by other 

,io teams. 

After some friction and more 
Totiations, two more draft picks 
led the squad yesterday. Rick 
ckley, ninth draft choice and 
•ve Alexakos, l he seventh pick, 
/e signed, and practiced yes- 

terday with the team. 


Alexakos and Hackery both have 
their work cut out for them after 
joining the squad late. Alittle 
jostleing of their old positions by 
the coaching staff might give them 
one foot in the old door. . .Coach 
Rush seemed very proud of the 
World Championship Ring he re- 
ceived for being on the Jets staff 
last year, as he well should be. 
The coach non-chalantly slipped it 
on and off his finger during the 
press conference. . .Jim Nance, 
still nursing a post-operative 
ankle, has been making a few more 
left hand cuts to test its strength. 
It appeared to be coming along 
fine, but don't expect the staff to 
play him until it becomes absol- 
utely necessary. Doesn't make 
much sense to loose a player like 
Nance in an inter-squad scrim- 
mage. . .Sellers is still unsigned, 
and rumors have him playing for 

Oakland or going into business 
without football, rumors that could 
be squelched with a little com- 
munication. . .Eisenhauer, former 
all-league defensive end for the 
Pats and a nine year veteran re- 
plies, "what knee" when he is 
asked about the condition of his 
recently operatied-on knee. Larry 
has really been hustling out at 
practice and starts at the begin- 
ning almost always, leading the 
squad in the pre -practice jog. . . 

Saturdays inter- squad scrimmage 
will include down field blocking 
and tackling. With this, the real 
nitty gritty begins. . .Finally, 
Nancy threw a complete pass to 
Jim Whalen in the last play of 
practice, maybe one quarterback 
will be enough. . .Oh, well, see 
you at the stadium. 


BOSTON - John Kitchen, who 
pitched the 1969 UMass baseball 
team to fifth place in the College 
World Series, and was looked to 
be the ace of the 1970 team, was 
signed the past month by the St. 
Louis Cardinals farm system, for a 
reported $12,000 bonus. Thus, 
Kitchen joins the pro ranks, after 
two superlative seasons in a U— 
Mass uniform. 

The junior Chicopee native was 
eligible to be drafted since he was 
21 years of age, even though he 
had another year of college eli- 
gibility. Kitchen had a 8-1 record 
this past season including a 5-2 
win over Dartmouth in the Dis- 
trict I playoffs, a win in which 
Kitchen had a no- hitter for al- 
most eight innings. The big right 
hander also hurled a brilliant three 
hit shutout over top ranked So. 
Illinois in round one of the World 
Series. . 

Kitchen was drafted in a late 
round by the Cardinals. However, 
his performance against So. Illi- 
nois was thought to change the 
Cardinal judgement. Also, the 
night of his signing, Kitchen pit- 
ched a 13 inning shutout in the 
tough Cape Cod league, a per- 
formance witnessed by a St. Louis 

Of, course, rabid UMass fans 
may be disgruntled at Kitchen's 
signing, which deprives their team 
of its ace. These fans may think 
that Kitchen should have waited 
a year. But, the decision that 
John Kitchen had to make was a 
personal one and one which can not 
be criticized. 

He is first of all a senior, and 
can gain his necessary credits 
for a degree in the off-season. 
Secondly, Kitchen could have been 
thinking of a fermer teammate 

John Canty. Canty was an over- 
powering pitcher for UMass in his 
sophomre and junior years. Ob- 
serviers looked towards Canty for 
a big seni9r year and the prospect 
of his signing a healthy bonus 
upon graduation. However, Canty, 
unfortunately, injured his arm in 
the senior year, and was sidelined 
squelching his bonus hopes. Canty 
did sign with the Houston Astros 
and is presently 4-0 with a Class 
A team. However, his injury which 
was treated for an entire year, 
destroyed his bonus hopes and 
nearly destroyed any hopes of fut- 
ure baU playing. 

A pitcher's arm can go bad at 
any time. And Kitchen could have 
felt that he had to give his shot at 
proball when the opportunity was 
offered to him and when he was 
healthy and not risk the fate of a 
sore arm. 

Kitchen received a healthy 
bonus, and has signed into one of

UMass Grad Students Seek Off-Campus Housing Union 

Guidelines for action in housing 
for married student s have been 
drawn up by a group of University 
of Massachusetts graduate stu- 
dents who feel local real estate 
men and landlords are "taking 
advantage of the university's lack 
of policy and exploiting us for ev- 
erything they can get." The guide- 
lines, which were made after a 
series of luncheons with Univer- 
sity officials, brokers and land- 
lords, call for the re -evaluation 
of university owned housing and the 
formation of an off-Campus Hous- 
ing Union. 

The university's 104-unit Lin- 
coln Apartments are currently the 

only housing available on cam- 
pus for married students. A un- 
iversity official said there is a 
waiting period of "six to 18 mon- 
ths before students can get in." 
A priority system in which the 
earliest application goes to the top 
of the list is used. Once a couple 
is admitted they can remain until 
work on the student's degree is 
completed. The graduate student 
housing group feels these apart- 
ments could be used more "ef- 
fectively" if students lived there 
the first year and then "becom- 
ing better acquainted with the area, 
they would then be able to find 
suitable housing." 

John Southern, a member of the 
group, said the primary goal of 
the Off-Campus Housing Union 
would be "to enforce all con- 
tractual agreements both on the 
part of the landlords and the ten- 
ants." The Union would consist of 
tenants, landlords and uni- 
versity officials. The university 
would keep copies of all contracts 
and the landlord could apply to 
the union, rather than the indi- 
vidual, when breeches of contracts 
arise. The university would be in 
a strong position to enforce the stu- 
dent's side of the contract by re- 
taining his transcript and degree. 

The rental rates of each housing 

unit would be fixed between the Un 
ion and landlords and rents for 
identical units in the same complex 
would be the same. Richard Pen- 
well, another group member, 
claimed that many complexes were 
charging new tenants highe r pri- 
ces for the same type of unit that 
the older tenants pay less for. 
Another provision in the Union 
guidelines states that "landlords 
will be permitted to increase rents 
on presently existing apartments 
if specific justifications are made 
that merit the rent increase." Ac- 
cording to Penwell, one apartment 
complex owner said he was rais- 
ing rents $15,000 because of taxes, 

but wfieTT w e checked with town 
hall the tax increases were only 

The final item on the plan for the 
Union calls for damage deposits 
to be administered by the Union 
rather than the landlord. The ten- 
ant would receive hi s deposit 
back upon termination of his con- 
tract providing no damage was 
done. Southern charged many 
tenants never "see the money 
again even if no damage was done." 

Southern described the reaction 
of the real estate men and land- 
lords as "cool" to the group's

Summer Senate Discusses Judiciary; 
Postpones Hatch Investigation 

The Kennedy incident, which 
has stirred positive and nega- 
tive response from thousands 
of Americans, is still in the 
news, as Senator Edward M. 
Kennedy returned to Washing- 
ton last night to his seat in 
the U. S. Senate. 

The response followed a na- 
tionally televised appearence 
on Friday evening by Kennedy 
in which he explained the cir- 
cumstances concerning his car 
accident and the resultant death 
of Miss Mary Jo Kopechne, a 
Kennedy aid. In the T.V. ap- 
pearence Kennedy had re - 
quested a vote of confidence 
from the people of Massa- 
chusetts as to whether he should 
remain in office as Mass. De- 
mocratic State Senator. The 
appeal by Kennedy swamped 
the Boston and Hyannis Port 
Post Offices with replies. 

As reported Tuesday in a 
copywrite story by the Boston 
Globe, a survey conducted on 

the weekend after the appeal 
stated 78 per cent of the people 
surveyed believed the Senator 
should remain in office, with 
11 per cent expressing no opin- 
ion. Kennedy aids stated in 
Hyannis Port that mail the Sen- 
ator was receiving ran 100 to 
1 in his favor. 

Speculation concerning Ken- 
nedy's future action and the 
effects this incident have had 
on other political figures has 
grown rapidly in the past few 

Senate Democratic Leader 
Mike Mansfield, in an interview 
with United Press International, 
predicted that Kennedy would 
not run for the 1972 president- 
ial nomination, leaving the 
prize to "an open field." 

Speculation concerning the e- 
ffects of this incident also fo- 
cused on the political careers 
of several prominant Demo - 
cratic figures. 

(Continued on Paqe 2) 



The Summer Senate, with a little 
over four weeks left to the Summer, 
finally got around to creating a 
summer judiciary at its meeting 
Tuesday night. The Senate, how- 
ever, neglected to set a deadline 
for implementing the judicial sys- 
tem, and speculation grew yester- 
day that the court system may 
never get off the ground. 

The bill which was passed, af- 
ter being amended several times 
by Senators Marcus, Sobelman, 
and Flink, privides for two sep- 
arate courts, a circuit, and a 
superior court. 

The circuit court would hear all 
charges against students, and 
would be made up of seven jus- 

tices - one from each dorm and 
one commuter. 

The superior court would hear 
any appeals of circuit court rul- 
ings, and would hav e five jus- 
tices, to be chosen from the stu- 
dent body at large. 

On e important aspect of the 
court system is that only vio- 
lations of student created laws can 
be heard by the courts. This pre- 
vents, as Senator Flink explained, 
"any student from being convict- 
ed by students of breaking an 
administration rule, which no stu- 
dent law-making body approves." 

But the Senate neglected to set 
a date for the choosing of jus- 
tices, or for the first court ses-

Letter grades have been abol- 
ished in favor of "satisfactory -

may still be taken for a letter

ter grade. 

"Modes of thought" courses 
have been established. These 
courses allow small groups of 
freshmen exposure to senior fac-

deal with questions and concepts 
rather than facts. The minimum

will be limitless. A student will 
be able to create the scope and con-

quently as he can come up with 

All of these changes and others 
have come about through student 
pressure. Student Government 
leader Ira Magaziner and other 
stucents began to study higher ed- 
ucation three years ago, relating 
their study to Brown in particular.

Former Vice President Hu- 
bert H. Humphrey, who made 
no secret of his desire for a 
rematch with his 1968 con - 
queror, President Nixon, is one 
of those men. 

Coincidently, the week of 
Kennedy's accident also brought 
the long-expected announce- 
ment that clears Humphrey's 
way for an attempt to return 
to the Senate. 

Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy (D. 
MINN.), his sometime colleague 
and 1968 rival for the Demo- 
cratic nomination, finally con- 
firmed that he would retire from 
the Senate this year. 

Humphrey's running mate, 
Sen. Edmund S. Muskie of Maine 
is another whose 197 2 prospects 
were immediately improved by 
Kennedy's accident. Earlier 
this year, Muskie had gone on 
the banquet circut in an effort 
to transform the popularity he 
won in 68 to support for the 
1972 presidential nomination. 
He returned from his travels 
apparently resigned to the in- 
evitability of Kennedy's nom- 

Sen. George McGovern of 
Wouth Dakota is the third man 
who was moved into the presi- 

dential spotlight as Kennedy's 
future becomes clouded. In 1968 
McGovern launched a late start- 
ing bid for the nomination, prin- 
cipally as a vehicle for sup- 
porters of Robert Kennedy. 

It is now possible that Mc- 
Govern may now become the 
fall-back candidate of some of 
Ted Kennedy's backers if Ken- 
nedy goes to the sidelines in 
the 1972 contest. 

Local residents can note the 
effect the incident has had here, 
as some local merchants are 
displaying petitions urging Ken- 
nedy to remain in omce. It 
was reported that earlier this 
week 2,200 signatures had al- 
ready been obtained and many 
more were being collected. 

Newspapers have reported 
many calls inquiring where let- 
ters to Kennedy could be sent, 
and petitions have reached the 
Student Union Lobby at the Uni- 
versity. The petition on a table 
in the lobby is headlined by a 
sign saying "Kennedy Stay." 

It is believed that the next 
step for the Senator, before any 
major decisions are made, will 
be his return to Washington 
for final debate and vote on the 
controversial ABM proposals.

in this direction." He also cri-

states that if a tenant and land-

that the graduate school alone ac- 
cepts over 500 students who are 
married but only has 104 housing 
units. He also criticized the 
university for allowing unmarried 
undergraduates to live off cam- 
pus while rooms in the dorms 
remain unoccupied. 

Southern also accused the land- 
lords of "not giving a hoot about 
the students. All they are after 
is our money," he said. He con- 
tinued "bitterness is beginning to 
flow." Penwell added "the land- 
lords may hav e a legal right but 
they don't have a moral right to 
charge what they are charging. 
If this (the Union) fails, a rent 
strike may be the solution."

delines to the graduate student 
senate this fall. They plan to add

other committees concerned with

A Review 






'The show must go On. 
The motto for the day, July 29, 
1969. Despite the fine work of 
the many University Crews in 
setting up for the Hollander String 
Quartet concert, the "Evening of 
Music Under the Stars" had to 
be presented under the roof of 
Mahar Auditorium because of the 

Haydn, Beethoven, and Webern 
were not the major worries in 
the minds of most at 7:30. one- 
half hour before the concert when 
there were only three people in 
the audience. It was quite obvi- 
ous that the attendance would suffer 
as a result of the terrential rains 
of the day. However, as Lois Fry 
from the Student Activities Office 
said, "The charm of the Quartet 
is enough to bring the people out 
to see them." And it was true, 
for by 8:00, concert time, there 
were just over two hundred peo- 
ple in the auditorium. Perhaps 
this small audience, compared to 
the audiences present at their two 
previous concerts here at the Uni- 
versity were a bit disappointing; 
however, their performance was 
surely not. 

Right from the opening of the 
Concert it must surely have been 
apparent that we had before us a 
most unusual group of young peo- 
ple. For, as is probably common 
knowledge already, the members of 
the Quartet all are between 22and 
25 in age and all are graduate of 
the Manhatten School of Music. In 
fact, at the end of next semester, 
they will all have Master Degrees 
from the same institution. Their 
education and technique was surely 
shown well last Tuesday at the 
Concert as well as the other per- 
formances here; however, tech- 
nique, and knowledge are not the 
only ingredients necessary to make 
a fine quartet. Unless those in- 
gredients can be combined with 
the ability to work together as a 
group, a quartet can not hope for 
much of a future. In reference 
to the Hollander String Quartet, 
Mr. Julian Olevsky artist in re- 
sidence at the University, "The 
Quartet is a group of hard 
working young musicians who can 

make a great success if they con- 
tinue their hard work." 

The Hollander's have had the 
opportunity to work very hard this 
summer as a result of a grant 
by the National Endowment for the 
Arts. They have spent most of 
their time at the University in 
group or individual practice and 
their improvement at each con- 
cert has been proof of that. It is 
the opinion of many that Tuesday 
night's concert was the climax of 
their season with beautifully per- 
formed works by Beethoven. Haydn 
and Webern. Incidentally, the aud- 
ience seemed a bit uneasy about 
the Webern selection, the only 
contemporary piece on the pro- 
gram. It was a welcomed con- 
trast to the standard chamber 
music styles of Haydn and Beeth- 
oven. The Quartet performed 
this serial musical (12 tone row 
scale), as difficult as it is, with 
technique and musical accuracy. 

INDEX EDITOR SKIP FINCH has completed the 1969 edition of the University's yearbook, and the 
final product is due to roU off the presses in several weeks. The Index will be distributed to all return- 
ing students at Registration September 8, and will be mailed to graduates in September.

Concerning Sen. Kennedy 

"You can use your enormous privilege and opportunity to seek purely 
personal pleasure and gain. But history will judge you, and, as years 
pass, you will ultimately judge yourself, on the extent to which you 
have used your gifts to lighten and enrich the lives of your fellowman." 

These words were spoken by Robert Kennedy several years ago at the 
University of California and by Edward Kennedy at this past year's 
commencement at the University of Massachusetts. 

The political future of Senator Edward M. Kennedy is in doubt. 
Granted, in all probability he will return to the United States Senate, 
but his future prospects as a presidential contender have been tem- 
porarily, if not permanently, side tracked by the incident last week on 
Chappaquiddick Island. 

Many questions remain unanswered concerning the events surround- 
ing the death of Mary Jo Kopechne. For example why didn't the sena- 
tor, or the two men who returned with him to the scene of the accident, 
Joe Gargan and former U.S. Attorney Paul Markham, notify authorit- 
ies? How could Kennedy, who described himself as being in a state of 
shock, swim the 500 feet between the mainland and the island of Chap- 

There are many in the state who say these questions aren't impor- 
tant. They agree with the Senator's views and thus urge him to remain 
in the United States Senate. However, if this unfortunate accident, 
which cost the life of a young girl, had happened to a less popular state 
official, say Gov. Sargent, there would be cries for impeachment. 

Whether the citizen be Edward M. Kennedy or Edward Moore, the 
questions concerning this crime, as with any other crime, must be 

Edward Kennedy has served the state exceptionally well in the Sen- 
ate. Several times before the accident, Senate Majority Leader Mike 
Mansfield has said that Edward has been a better senator than either 
of his two older brothers. 

Kennedy's views and votes on such crucial issues as Vietnam, the 
ABM, military spending, racial discrimination, tax reform, and even the 
future of this University, have always been in the best interest of the 
citizens of Massachusetts. 

For the good of the Commonwealth, and for his own political future, 
we urge Senator Kennedy to answer the remaining questions and to 
immediately return to his seat in the United States Senate.

Older Generation Catches Up With Hippies 

I had vaguely been aware of 
the adult drug problem in the 
past, but it was not until recen- 
tly when I had a chance to speak 
to Manny Marx, the town hippie 
and sandal maker, that I was made 
aware of the serious implications 
it might create. 

"Well groovy man, what's new 
with the straight world?", Manny 
asked as I walked into his lea- 
ther shop. 

"Nothing much Manny, how's 

"Business man, is just outa 
sight, cats just keep rollin in 
here and buyin my footware. But 
man, I'm worried about the oth- 
er side of the gap man, and the 

"Translate please Manny." 

"Oh sure. Adults man, they're 
really startin to pop pills, just 
to keep them goin. Ole Sally 
Jones who used to be the ner- 
vous chick in a TV ad, just got 
elected president of her club. And, 
Bill Williams got his bonus on the 
same ad just cause he ain't got 
the jitters no more. Why, I even 
turned on the sound to hear what 


was going on. And you know what 
man? They popped a pill, yeah, 
a non-perscription pill is what 
slowed em down. Ah, Repose, 
Slow World, all relaxers for the 
geritol set, tranquilizers." 

"Well Manny, what's got you 
so upset, I mean adults have been 
popping all kinds of legal pills for a 
long time." 

"Yeah man, but that didn't ef- 
fect the old apple pie image. Can 
you see the kids in some cat's 
house rippin up the carpets and 
paint in Picasso's on the walls 
while their mother is contemplat- 
ing a cob-web in the corner of 
the pantry. It's scary man. I 
mean O.K. so I go off the deep 
end once and a while. I always got 
mom to come back to. Now man, 
she just might trip out further en 
me, and end up as a factual case 
on one of them police shows. 
Another thing man, look at the 
world today, real bad. Well, 
let them start poppin pills man 
and we ain't gonna have a protest 
left to protest. As the old D. 
says, it just might ease their 
heads and clear their minds, mean- 

while puttin me and all my brothers 
out of non-employment employ- 

"Well Manny, it could legalize 
the drug laws." 

"Yeah man, what a drag, le- 
galized grass, speed, man that 
takes away all the charge. How 
can you tell me I'm gonna en- 
joy legalized drugs. 

"The worst thing man will be 
tryin to get bread from my old 
man. If he turns on he might be- 
come immaterialistic. Who'd I 
go to for bread? I'd really have 
to go to work man, that's bad, 
real bad." 

"Well Manny, I can see you have 
a legitimate worry. Listen, just 
the other day I heard that bar- 
bers were really Communists, and 
when they put that smelly hair 
tonic on your hair, it slowly seeps 
into your brain and . . . ." 

"Man, you heard that too! Let 
me tell you about my barber, I 
mean when I go. He's got a so- 
called "Japanese gardener" and 
his favorite color's red, and 
with them Mao shirts them bar- 
bers wear, well I mean like . . ." 

With our Polaris fleet, our landbased ICBM's, our strategic bombers, 
and the thousands of additional nuclear warheads we have at sea and 
abroad, are still more weapons of war needed? 

Opponents of the ABM have successfully demonstrated that there is 
reason to doubt the effectiveness of the radar components, which have 
not been built yet alone tested. 

Finally, we have no guarantee that the Soviet Union will not respond 
to an ABM system here, by increasing its offensive strength so as to 
negate any possible advantage which might be derived from a Safeguard 

A Congressional approval of President Nixon's ABM system can only 
lead to a further escalation of the arms race. Both Senators Kennedy 
and Brooke have spoken against the ABM. Many Bay State Congress- 
men have not yet committed themselves. 

The vote in the Senate on Safeguard comes next week. Wo hope for 
its defeat.

Senator Edward Kennedy's recent 
automobile tragedy highlights what 
i s wrong with the value s of our 
society. The immediate assump- 
tion by many people that the Sen- 
ator was involved in immoral con- 
duct and excessive drinking re- 
veals the instinctively warped bent 
of the collective mind of the Uni- 
ted States, which glorifies in bits 
of tawdry gossip while glossing 
over issues of substantive sig- 
nificance. Nothing since the ac- 
cident has been uncovered, to even 
suggest, let alone prove, any 
wrong-doing on the part of the Sen- 
ator except his leaving the scene 
of a fatal accident. 

The crime, a misdemeanor, is 
legally indefensible. However, 
when viewed in the context of the 
emotional trauma of being at the 
wheel of a car that resulted in 
the death of a close friend, the 
despair and frustration of not be- 
ing able to rescue her, and the 
actual physical suffering of total 
exhaustion and concussion, the 
commission of the misdemeanor 
should be at least understandable, 

The Senator demonstrated, per- 
haps all too humanly, in the hours 
following the tragedy, that he too 
possesses the same emotions that 
grip all of us in times of personal 
stress - panic, fear, confusion, 
grief. Yet the implication of much 
popular comment and opinion is 
that a public office holder, and es- 
pecially a Kennedy, should not dis- 
play ordinary human emotions. It 
would seem that a nation indebted 
as it is to the results of the lead- 
ership of a generation of Kennedy 
men could summon up at least a 
modicum of sympathy and com- 
passion towards the last of four 
heroically compassionate men. 

The public's irate reaction to the 
circumstances surrounding the ac- 
cident is Inexcusable in light of 
the serious, immoral, repulsive - 
yet secret - crimes committed 
daily by public office holders whose 
integrity and devotion to the pub- 
lic good can be called into ques- 

We have a President who will 
sell his soul to the highest bid- 
der, be he Strom Thurmond, the 

American Medical Association, or 
the warlords of the Pentagon, in 
return for political profit. We have 
a "distinguished" Southern Con- 
gressional establishment which 
commits systematic genocide to 
the blacks in their region and 
throughout the country at the 
same time they chant "Love Am- 
erica or leave it." We have local 
officials across the country who 
will appropriate enormous sums of 
money to repress the violent re- 
sults of generations of inhuman po- 
verty and exploitation, but who will 
deny the availability of at least 
equal amounts to eliminate the

National Goals 

Senator Edward Kennedy's Commencement Address 

(Ed note: In the wake of Sen. Edward Kennedy's request that the citizens of Massachusetts respond 
to the question of whether or not he should resign, we are reprinting the Senator's Speech 
which he delivered at the UMass Commencement, May 31, 1969) 

It is a privilege to be here this morning, 
and to participate with the Class of 1969 
and their families and friends in this com- 
mencement and to be with all of those who 
serve the people of the Commonwealth 
through the University of Massachusetts. 

All of us in Massachusetts are proud of 
the extraordinary growth and achievement of 
our State University. In the last ten years 
the enrollment has more than tripled. But 
you have maintained a high quality of educa- 
tion. With the new professional schools here 
and in Worcester; with the extension of your 
activities into other countries and in the ser- 
vice of our community, the University of 
Massachusetts has been one of the outstand- 
ingly successful enterprises of our Com- 

This university bears the burden of public 
higher education in Massachusetts. Your 
expansion has been rapid, but not as rapid 
as the need. Ten years from now, unless 
we make an extraordinary effort, there will 
be over 100,000 qualified people of college 
age here in Massachusetts who will not be 
able to go to College. 

So while we can be very proud of what we 
have done, we realize the need for even 
greater efforts— if we are to keep up with 
the rest of the nation; and more important 
if we are to fulfill our responsibilities to 
our own people. 

No university in our nation, at this time, is 
without difficulty. No university whould be. 
For if a university is to be a community 
institution , a protector of free opinion, it is 
going to find itself in the middle of the action 
and the passions of the time. 

To understand the restlessness of the na- 
tion today, and the disillusion that exists a- 
mong so many, we must go back four years, 
to the time the Class of 1969 entered this 

In 1965, the country had a sense of ac- 
complishment. It looked as if we could fin- 
ally overcome the problems of progress and 
social Justice that had been with as so long. 
In that one year, we achieved Medicare for 
the elderly and federal assistance for the 
education of the young. The right to vote, 
the right to an integrated education, the right 
to equal access to public accommodations 
had been written into the laws of the land. 
We had begun to face the problems of 
poverty and pollution, and the needs of re- 
creation and housing. With a growing econ- 
omy producing a surplus of revenue, we had 
plans to share taxes with state and local 
governments, so they could meet their ob- 
ligations without increasing the tax burdens 
on their citizens. 

But the year you entered this university 
was also the year the nation allowed the 
growth of two conditions, which eroded much 
we had accomplished. We began to escalate 
the war in Vietnam --first in the hope we 
could win it, then in the hope that military 
pressure and more destruction would force 
our adversaries into speedy negotiations. 
And we saw the escalation of fear in this 
country- -first in reaction to the urban riots, 
beginning with Watts in 1965; then in re- 
sponse to crime and dissent and growing 
disorder. The policies in Vietnam divided 
us from our allies. Fear at home divided 
us from one another. Together, they dis- 
tracted us from the great work of progress 
and Justice. Together they strengthened 
the militants and extremists, both of the 
right and the left, who feel America cannot 

be cleansed of injustice without radical 
change, and that this cannot take place with- 
out violence. 

For many months, the advocates of vio- 
lence had their chance to speak, the media 
gave wide expression to their views. Finally 
last year, the people had a chance to speak 
—and they, too, in their own quiet way, 
spoke for change. Not as violent, not as 
fundamental, but just as certain. 

It is no coincidence that by the end of 
the Presidential campaign, both the major 
candidates had adopted the views, on these 
two critical issues, that had been endorsed 
by the voters in the primaries in New 
Hampshire, in Wisconsin, Oregon and Cal- 
ifornia. The people may have asked for a 
period of calm and an end to violence. We 
certainly deserved it. But if anyone still 
believes that calm follows the status quo, 
they have missed the lesson of the last 
four years. 

The greatest force in America today is the 
desire for peaceful change. Out of the frus- 
tration and violence and disillusion of your 
college years come widespread desire to 
make our institutions more responsive. We 
are looking very critically at things we 
used to take for granted. 

A significant number of Americans, of all 
ages, seriously question whether our pri- 
vate universities should be governed by 
small, self-perpetuating bodies, in whose 
deliberations those who teach and those 
who learn do not have a voice. 

Others raise the question of whether uni- 
versity admissions policies, as admin- 
istered today, do not have a built-in bias a- 
gainst those from homes of less opportunity 
and whether they do not perpetuate racial 
and class division in America. 

They question whether the network of al- 
liances and commitments we have under - 
taken.around the world, should not be re- 
duced, because it no longer corresponds 
to the world as it is, and it presents too 
great a risk of sudden and undesired con- 
frontation, as in the case of the Pueblo and 
the spy plane we lost last month. 

And they question whether the ethical re- 
quirements for men in public life, including 

judges , are high enough. And at the same 
time, they wonder whether a society whose 
private ethics permit conflicts of interest, 
and widespread use of influence, can en- 
force a higher standard on its public ser- 
vants than it demands of itself. 

These, and many others, are new issues 
that changing generations and changing val- 
ues force upon us. But it will be more dif- 
ficult to face them when the two enervating 
issues of the last four years are still un- 

I am hopeful that the next few months 
will see a major change in Viet Nam in the 
direction of peace. 

We demand peace and we deserve peace, 
for we have given much. We have lost 
more than 35,000 of our men; Massachu- 
setts has lost close to 800 men. These 
soldiers were men in courage, men in 
daring, and men in devotion to their leader- 

But they were boys in age. When the first 
American fell in Vietnam our latest casual- 
ties were In the sixth grade of our public 
schools. Half of all who have died in Viet- 
nam were too young to vote in America. 

This violence must end. The level of 
military activity must be lowered. The 

lives of additional Americans must be 
spared and no longer lost in an effort we 
seek to conclude. 

As Senator Mansfield, the Majority 
leader of the United States Senate said this 
week, "In my judgment, it is a mark not of 
disrespect, but of the most profound appre- 
ciation for the fallen in battle to try to fore- 
stall the loss of additonal American lives 
in Vietnam. Areas are won and lost many 
times on a temporary basis. Lives are lost 
but once and on a permanent basis." 

I have spoken out before on the loss of 
American lives; I shall speak again and a- 
galn, and speak freely. For this matter is 
too vital for partisanship - too tragic for 

And I am hopeful that the meeting on Mid- 
way Island next week will be successful. 

I believe that the American people will 
fully support their President as he speaks 
with frankness and candor to the President 
of South Vietnam. For we are mindful of 
why American boys were sent to Vietnam. 

They were not sent there to support any 
particular government. 

They have not fought in heat and mud 
simply to keep one or two individuals in 
Saigon's Presidential palace. 

We have not expended countless billions 
to prop up a government that jails its op- 
ponents, shuts down newspapers, and seeks 
to strengthen itself through repression. 

American men are in Vietnam - so we are 
told - only to guarantee the people free 
choice. And American diplomats are in 
Paris to find peace as quickly as possible. 

If that is the case, Presdient Thieu should 
hear it. If we bear burdens, so must he. 
If we who have given so much and suffered 
so greatly must make concessions for peace, 
President Thieu must do the same, or elect 
to face his future alone. 

The other problem Is far more difficult. 
A committed government can reduce the 
violence in Vietnam and eventually win a 
settlement. But only the deepest kind of 
commitment, nation wide, can eliminate the 
causes of civil disorder and resore trust 
among the people of the United States. 

For years we have promised to heal the 
sick and clean the air, to eliminate the 
causes of Juvenile delinquency, to build 
housing, and hospitals and schools and 
communities fit to live in. All these jobs 
remain still to be done. Each of us has our 
own work to do, i n our own cities, the 
places where we work and our own children 

The real issue today is not whether change 
will occur. That is certain. But will it 
happen peacefully, through debate and dis- 
cussion , in ways that strengthen our con- 
fidence in one another? Or will it come vio- 
lently- -against the wall and in the streets -- 
in a way that pulls our people apart. 

We tell our blacks and other minorities 
that work is more acceptable than welfare or 
a life of crime. Yet they are still the last 
hired, the first fired, and the worst paid. 

We tell our young people to "work within 
the system" yet the legislatures in state 
after state, this spring, have refused to give 
18, 19 and 20 year olds the vote and make 
them participating citizens. We can be 
proud that in Massachusetts, the legislature 
just this week has recognized the voting 
rights of tlfese young people. 

Years of war, centuries of Injustice and 
the rapid change in our technologies have 

brought forth new movements which deny 
that peaceful change is possible. They want 
to shut down our universities and tear down 
our institutions. Their excesses have 
strengthened the forces of fear in the nation 
at large. 

Discontent can be met or it can be re- 
pressed. We can keep faith with those who 
seek improvements, or we can ignore them. 
If the vigilante spirit grows in the United 
States, if we believe that our most difficult 
problems can be smashed rather than 
solved, there is no doubt that violence will 
continue, repression will grow and the li- 
berties of us all will be endangered. 

Therefore it is essential when any of 
these confrontations develop that we re- 
member it is American citizens on both 
sides of the barricades. The police do not 
deserve scorn or hate, demonstrators do not 
deserve to be thoughtlessly beaten back. All 
are members of the human family with 
hopes and dreams which deserve consider- 
ation. What unites us in tradition and hu- 
manity is far greater than what divides us 
in issues and values. 

Years from now, we will look back at this 
period in history either as a time when our 
difficulties overcame us, or as a time in 
which we found our way. 

John Adams once said that "it was con- 
fidence in one another, and in the common 
people, which enabled the United States to 
go through the American Revolution." 

Seven years from now will be the 200th 
anniversary of the Revolution. Will we be 
engaged once again in solving these diffi- 
culties in a hopeful spirit, or will we be 
engaged in revolutionary action against 
each other? 

I am hopeful that we will not lose our 
way. I believe the energy and enthusiasm 
that built this country will find a new be- 
ginning. We have had difficulties in the 
past, both at home and abroad, but where 
leadership was bold, the people did re- 
spond, with intelligence and understanding, 
and with trust in one another. 

We need not be afraid to set demanding 
goals. Our people are richer, more in- 
formed, more capable than they have ever 
been. Not enough is being asked of us and 
we are not asking enough of ourselves. 
This is the work of our own hands and the 
gift of our own hearts. 

And in this work we look to those gradu- 
ates of our universities who have had these 
advantages more than most. 

Robert Kennedy once told the students at 
the University of California that "by coming 
to this school you have been lifted to a tiny, 
sunlit island while all around you lies a dark 
ocean of human misery, injustice, violence 
and fear. You can use your enormous 
privilege and opportunity to seek purely 
private pleasure and gain. But history will 
judge you, and, as years pass, you will ul- 
timately judge yourself, on the extend to 
which you have used your gifts to lighten 
and enrich the lives of your fellowman." 
Those who have the privilege of gradua- 
ting from this university will set these 
standards for decades to come. You will 
help decide whether your fellow citizens will 
be passive and selfish, or active and gener- 
ous and bold. 

The state of our country today - both its 
problems and its hopes - are a measure 
of the challenge held out to all of you. I am 
confident you will grasp it with conviction 
and with courage. 





AMHERST, Mass. - int traditional topping off symbol, an evergreen tree, Is raised on the roof of 
the nine-story UMass Murray D. Lincoln Campus Center. Topping off means that the structure of the 
building is complete. Interior work will continue at the Lincoln Center until the scheduled completion 
early next year. Designed by Marcel Breuer, the building will house conference and student union 
facilities, including overnight accommodations and several dining areas. It is being built at no cost to 
taxpayers on a self-amortizing basis by the UMass Building Authority. An adjoining underground 
parking garage will hold 1000 cars. Center and garage will cost an estimated $16 million. 

UMass Studies New Solutions 
For Complex Urban Problems 

An urban education center on a 
country campus has to reach out, 
which is why the UMass Center 
for Urban Education has projects 
going or planned from California 
to Pennsylvania. 

In Temple City and Pasadena, 
Cal.; Philadelphia, Pa.; Harford, 
Conn.; and Pittsfield and Spring- 
field in Massachusetts UMass 
people are designing and trying 
out new educational models to fit 
urban needs. 

"If one strength of the Center 
for Urban Education had to be 
singled out. it would be the di- 
versity of the participating doc- 
toral students and faculty. There 
are experts in urban education, 
reading, early childhood education, 
and the use of media in educa- 
tion. There are experienced ur- 
ban school teachers and adminis- 
trators. There are computer ex- 
perts both in the applications to 
administration and to instruction. 
There are those from outside the 
field of education: historians, so- 
ciologists, politicians, and com- 
munity leaders," according to 
Thomas A. Anderson of the Cen- 

The diversity is carried out in 
the projects. At the fringe of 
the Los Angeles area in Temple 
City, the emphasis is on in- 
novative methods for the city 
school- -developing a whole new 
educational model that can serve 
any urban school. UMass grad- 
uate students serving as internes 
at Temple City are concentrating 
on such new educational concepts 
as differentiated staffing, compu- 
ter-assisted instruction and pro- 
grams for the use of paraprofes- 
slonals or tc. chers aides. 

In Pasadena, Cal., population 
175,000, which UMass specialists 

call a microcosm of a large city, 
a University group is aiding the 
planning of an inner- city com - 
munity school. The planners are 
resident graduate student internes, 
aided by UMass staff members 
shuttling to California. A plan- 
ning grant from the U. S. Office 
of Education aids the project. 

A community school goes be- 
yond the traditional Kindergarten- 
through-12 range to serve the whole 
urban community- -pre-schoolers, 
special students, drop-outs, adults 
and others. Planners of the Pasa- 
dena community school are 
working directly through Pasa- 
dena's unique Westside Study Cen- 
ter, a community center that pro- 
vides a "hope factor" through ed- 
ucation for the disadvantaged and 

In Philadelphia another kind of 
project and another approach is 
used at the Pennsylvania Advance- 
ment School, sponsored by the 
Philadelphia public school system 
as a development center and ex- 
perimental school for under- 
achieving junior high boys. Several 
of the school staff are doctoral 
students at the UMass School of 
Education and will complete a 
year in residence at UMass in 
addition to in-service study at the 
advancement school. 

According to Center director 
Atron A. Gentry, "work in new 
kinds of education structures and 
new ways of training teachers" 
is the aim of the UMass project 
in Hartford. A five- man Hart- 
ford coordinating team of doctoral 
students laid the groundwork last 
year; during the coming school 
year the UMass Center for Ur- 
ban Education and the Hartford 
public school system will be part- 
ners in a laboratory-type urban 

elementary school. The UMass 
group will spend the first semes- 
ter in planning with the school 
faculty and the second semester 
working with student teachers. 

Students from UMass will work 
with residents of Pittsfield during 
the coming year in a number of 
urban education areas. In Spring- 
field, work will be continued on 
a cooperative venture with the 
public school department on the 
design of the proposed Bright- 
wood community school. 

A UMass class in urban com- 
munity relations spent all of last 
semester on the development of 
the Brightwood plan. Similar work 
is planned for the coming semes- 

Plans Announced 
For Anti-War Strike 

WASHINGTON (AP) - A student 
antiwar group announced plans for 
a nationwide moratorium Oct. 15 
on "business as usual" at college 
campuses to protest the Vitnam 

The moratorium is designed to 
enable students, faculty, admin- 
istrators and other supporters to 
distribute leaflets, organize dis- 
cussions and engage in house-to- 
house canvassing against the war. 

They announced support from 95 
student editors and presidents, 
adding that only one person they 
approached turned them down while 
20 others said they supported the 
move but declined to list their 
names at present. 

Sen McClellan Says 
College Disturbances 
Must Be Fed Offenses 

College Press Service 
WASHINGTON (CPS) - Sen. John McClellan (D-Ark.) climaxed his 
investigations into campus disorders this week by proposing that col- 
lege disturbances be made a federal offense and by bringing in Dr. 
James Copeland, president of the City College of New York (CCNY), 
to make the most sweeping indictment of student protestors yet aired. 
Less than an hour after Copeland told McClellan's Permanent In- 
vestigations Subcommittee that groups such as Students for a Demo- 
cratic Society (SDS) were "inherently treasonous and dedicated to the 
destruction of education' ' McClellan stood on the Senate floor and in- 
troduced a bill that would subject student protestors to fines as high 
as $10,000 and imprisonment for as bng as life. 

Standing alone on the Senate floor and speaking quietly to a gallery 
full of summer tourists, McClellan said, "The use of force to occupy 
buildings, to destroy personal or community property, and to make 
physical attacks upon faculty members and students cannot by any 
standards be considered a legitimate form of protest." 

There is little indication McClellan's bill will receive much support. 
McClellan's House counterpart, Rep. Edith Green (D-Ore.), failed in 
her attempt several weeks ago to muster enough support for conduct 
code legislation. 

McClellan has been very selective in requesting persons to testify 
before the committee, hearing only the most conservative. When the 
committee had requested Harvard President Nathan Pusey to testify 
and then later discovered his prepared testimony did not vehemently 
denounce the Harvard "moderates," but actually praised them, Mc- 
Clellan brought a conservative Harvard graduate student in at the last 

The grad student testified throughout the day, and Pusey left in the 
afternoon without testifying. 

Like most administrators who have come before the committee, 
Copeland introduced into the record the names of more than 225 stu- 
dents arrested in April and May demonstrations at CCNY which closed 
down the school. Students were demanding open enrollment and that 
proficiency in Spanish be made a requirement for all education school 
graduates. (Their rationale was that most CCNY education school 
graduates teach in areas where a large percentage of the population 
is Puerto Rican.) 

The CCNY administration later agreed to both demands. Open en- 
rollment, however, is contingent upon a $240 million increase in the 
budget over a five year period, and that increase may not be forth- 
coming. Target date for open enrollment is September, 1970. 

Sen. Abraham Ribicoff (D-Conn.) charged Copeland with being ir- 
responsible before the president could finish his 15 -minute indictment. 
"If it were not for the violent disruption that occurred in the CCNY 
campus, you would not have instituted the bi-Ungual demand by this 
September." Ribicoff, who was admittingly disturbed by what he 
termed the "failure of college administrators across the whole coun- 
try to understand the needs of students and the community," con- 
demned Copeland for "making heroes out of the militants. You have 
failed to realize the basic needs of the people." 

Copeland read off a list of subversive groups on his campus, approx- 
imating their size and influence. He charged that SDS, the Communes 
(a newly formed yippie-hippie group), the Progressive Labor Party, 
the Black Panthers, Cuban- Puerto Rican militants, and other black 
militants all work to "disrupt the entire university." Copeland said 
this is something we can see happening in many small colleges. "It 

can be contained," he said. 

Copeland estimated the members of those groups composed between 
one-half and one per cent of the total student body of 20,000 at CCNY. 
Ribicoff then retorted, "You are condemning some 200 students who 

made you see the light." ,#/«»* *\ 

McClellan, Sen. Karl Mundt (R-S.D.), and Sen. Lee Metcalf (D-Mont.) 
all praised 'Copeland, Metcalf explaining, "No one has made such a 
sweeping indictment of these groups as you have." 

Copeland ended his testimony by promising McClellan "to do every- 
thing in the power of CCNY to see educational reform in a peaceful 

atmosphere." . 

The hearings have been recessed, probably until discussion can begin 

on McClellan's bill. 

UM Biochem Professor 
Studies Rodent Control 

Anthony Gawienowski is doing 
more than just building a better 

The UMass biochemist has 
started on a whole new tack in 
rodent control by adding a new 
element— sex. 

Sex in the form of pheromones, 
that is. A pheromone is an air- 
borne chemical substance some 
animals use as a sex attractant. 
Its use among insects has been 
pretty well studied and documented 
but much less is known about 
pheromones in rodents. 

Gawienowski, an associate pro- 
fessor in the UMass biochemistry 
department, has begun a one- year 
study of rat pheromones under a 
grant from the U. S. Army Re- 
search Office. The Army is in- 
terested because rats cause 
trouble in the field, raid supply 
dumps and even gnaw wires. 

The immediate aim of the one- 
year study, then, is to try to iso- 
late the rat pheromones, analyze 
them and possibly synthesize them 
for use in attracting rats to traps 
or poison. 
The UMass biochemist plans to 

collect the airborne chemicals by 
placing cold traps on glass en- 
closed rat cages. A cold trap 
uses the action of dry ice to con- 
dense odors and other airborne 
chemicals. Once collected, the 
substances will be analyzed 
through gas chromatography and 
similar methods. 

Gawienowski will be aided in 
the study by graduate students Paul 
J. Orsulak of Lansford. Pa., Mi- 
chael Rosen of Pittsfield and Dr. 
James Finnerty, post-doctoral fel- 
low. Gawienowski is a specialist 
in animal hormones and became 
interested in chemical attractants 
through his studies of reproduct- 
ion-connected hormones. 

"The chemical we isolate will 
probably be a steroid or a similar 
carbon ring compound," he said. 
"On the other hand we may find 
a combination of chemicals." 

The long-range aim of the re- 
search is to understand more a- 
bout pheromones and how rodents 
react to them. "It could probably 
also lead to studies of sex attract- 
ants in other animals," Gawien- 
owski said. 

State Legislators Slow in Lowering Voting Age 

CoUege Press Service 

WASHINGTON (CPS) - Attempts 
to lower the voting age are pro- 
ceding slowly as 41 state legis- 
latures hav e considered a re- 
duction in the minimum age dur- 
ing their current sessions. 

Thirteen state legislatures have 
approved bills calling for state 
referendums on the issue of lo- 
wering the voting age to 18, 19, 
or 20. In several of these states 
a re -vote in the legislature next 
year must preceed a public ref- 

In no cas e has a state com- 
pleted the process of reducing 
the voting age this year. Twen- 
ty states have defeated bills 
which would hav e put the issue 
before statewide referendum. 
Three other state legislatures have 

Valuable Town 

Thinking of buying a house in 
the Amherst area? It is pro- 
bably a good investment. 

Real estate values have risen 
considerably as the University of 
Mass. continues to grow. Some 
people who have stayed here for 
only a few years have sold homes 
at prices much higher than what 
they paid. The trend toward ris- 
ing prices shows little sign of 
slowing while the university con- 
tinues to grow. 

UMass will add 1500 students next 
year, and the staff and faculty to 
go with them. 

A year from September, Hamp- 
shire College, a new liberal arts 
college in South Amherst, will ad- 
mit its first class of students, 
about 250 freshmen. Hampshire 
is currently recruiting faculty 

As these institutions grow, the 
towns around them do, too, and

them. In five states bills are 
still pending, with the outlook for 
passage good in only one, Miss- 
ouri. The remainder of states and 
the District of Columbia have not 
even considered the issue. Only 
two states, Kentucky and Georgia, 
now have the 18 -year old vote. 
Of the states which have approv- 
ed referendums to lower the vot- 
ing age, seven have set the min- 
imum age at 19, five at 18, and 
one (Nebraska) at 20. States which 
have approved referendums on the 
issue are: Alaska (18 years old), 
Connecticut (18), Delaware (19), 
Hawaii (18), Massachusetts (19), 
Minnesota (19), Montana (19), Ne- 
braska (20), Nevada (18), New Jer- 
sey (18), Ohio (19), Oregon (19), 

states have set up 1970 refer- 
endums, while Ohio and New Jer- 
sey will vote on the issue this 

In Pennsylvania the two houses 
of the state legislature have pass- 
ed contradicting bills. The House 
passed a bill to set the age at 18, 
while a Senate bill passed estab- 
lishing the age at 19. A joint 
committee from both houses are 
meeting this summer to resolve 
the difference. 

The state receiving the most at- 
tention this summer by the Youth 
Franchise Coalition, a national 
lobby body seeking to reduce the 
voting age, is Ohio. Ohio's ref- 
erendum, approved this spring by 
the state legislature, will be held 

in November, and Youth Franchise 
spokesmen believe the chance for 
voter approval is very good. The 
Ohio Education Association is 
meeting this week with the lead- 
ership of both political parties in 
an attempt to create a unified cam- 
paign in support of the issue. 

There is no doubt, according to 
Youth Franchise coordinator Ian 
MacGowan, that approval in Ohio 
will increase the chances for app- 
roval of a lower voting age in oth- 
er states. In other key states: 

New Jersey - Like Ohio, New 
Jersey has passed a statewide 
referendum biU, and the refer- 
endum is scheduled for this fall.

ered crucial.

College Should Teach Peace-Making 

COLUMBIA, Mo. (CPS) - "The 
science of peace-making and world 
law should be a t the top of the 
curriculum at every school. There 
is a fantastic default on the part 
of the people who call themselves 
educators," according to Bill 
Wicker sham, director of the Miss- 
ouri Peace Institute. 

"This ought to be the most im- 
portant thing a university could 
do," he stated. Wickersham dis- 
agrees with those who believe that 
war and militarism "is locked into 
our genes." Education is the only 
means to successfully avoid the 
"dog-eat-dog necrophilic orienta- 
tion" which characterizes our so- 

We should use "man's best me- 
thod, social science, on man's 
greatest problems," Wickersham 
said. He called on students to 
press for eclectic peace course 
and praised Morningside College 

in Ohio for devoting an entire 
semester to the study of peace. 
Questions of great importance 
about war and peace are not be- 
ing discussed, he said. "Are there 
any conditions under which we 
want to kill 100 million people? 
We aren't asking that question. 
Very seldom in a holistic way do 
we attack the problems of world 
law and peace. Peace is such a 
semantically loaded word," Wick- 
ersham said. 

To change attitudes and revise 
opinions is an almost insurmoun- 
table task, he said. He cited the 
$4 million military expenditure for 
lobbying and 1 million jobs which 
would gain profits and salaries 
from the Anti-Ballistic Missile 
program. "ABM may be the tech- 
nological straw that breaks man's 
back," Wickersham said. 

A safe ABM system would re- 
quire extensiv e construction of 

shelters for defense, but you "al- 
ways will be behind with defense. 
For every dollar you spend on of- 
fense, you require $50 for de- 
fense," he said. 

If enough "machines" aresetup 
in enough places, a mistake is 
bound to occur which could kill 
300,000 Americans. Wickersham 
said such an accident might, in a 
tragic way, be a good thing be- 
cause it would show us what can 

Wichersham criticized the ex- 
istence of ROTC programs on cam- 
puses because they are "not a life 
producing activity." 

Wickersham, a member of the 
World Peace Organization, is also 
a member of the national advis- 
ory committee on the proposed 
Department of Peace. The Miss- 
ouri Peace Institute is devoted to 
making peace education a basic 
study area in American educa-

Patriots Cut Five, Try Out New Offensive Tactics 

Ray llg was a middle linebacker 
yesterday. Today he's looking tor 
a new job. 

Qg was one of five Boston Pat- 
riots cut yesterday. Two other 
"oldtimers," released were offen- 
sive lineman Jim Boudreaux and 
linebacker Ed Koontz. Rookies 
trimmed were Bryan Magnuson, 
offensive back, and Byron Morgan, 
defensive back. 

For llg, one of the local products 
on the club, it was the end of a 
rather strange career. 

"I guess I have had an unusual 
career," said llg before last 
night's bad news reached him. "I 
was a starter in the first game 
of my rookie year two years ago, 
but then I'kind of faded behind 
Nick Buoniconti. That was the 
year Nick got sick and missed the 
opener at Denver. 

"When I look back on it now/' 
mused Ray, "I really missed my 
golden opportunity to step in and 
become a regular last year." 

Minutes after Buoniconti was 
knocked out for the year. llg also 
suffered an injury. "It happened 
in the same game, right after Nick 
got hurt," said Ray. 

llg, a former All-Scholastic full 
back at Wellesley High and All- 
East as a Colgate linebacker, did- 
n't leave a stone unturned in an 
effort to stay with the club. 

When punter Terry Swansonwas 
released, llg went to Coach Clive 
Rush and offered his services. It 
had been too long since Ray aver- 
aged nearly 40 yards a punt in 
college, though. 

"I realize the position I'm in," 
llg said then, "and I know Ruch's 
philosophy is to have every man be 
as versatile as he can. If a guy 
has more than one thing going for 
him in this camp it's a real plus. 

"I have confidence in my ability 
as a linebacker," he added. '1 
feel I'm able to start. I know I 
can. . .but I'll have to wait and see 
how things develop." 

For llg, who had a problem be- 
cause of his size - 6-1 and only 
220 - things never really de- 

Boudreaux is another story. He 
was supposed to be a big hit, an 

instant success like Dick Arring- 
ton, the Notre Dame All- American 
Purdue's Karl Singer and South- 
ern Mississippi's John Mangum. 

These were supposed to be the 
men to fill the gaps, replace the 
aging Pats' linemen. Now, only 
offensive lineman Singer remains 
and he's not on too solid ground. 

Boudreaux caused a bit of a stir 
last year when the Cincinnati Ben- 
gals, after picking him in the ex- 
pansion draft, returned him to the 

Hall of Fame Enshrines Four 

Baseball enshrined four players 
into the Hall of Fame Monday - 
pitchers Waite Hoyt and Stanley 
Coveleski of yesteryear and slug- 
gers Roy Campanella and Stan 
Musial of more recent times. 

Hundreds of fans gathered in 
Cooper Park and ignored an occa- 
sional drizzle to see the four for- 
mer stars officially inducted into 
the Baseball Hall of Fame in this 
central New York village. 

There was a lot of reminiscing, 
a few choked voices and even some 

Campanella, the Brooklyn Dod- 
ger catcher whose career was cut 
short by a paralyzing automobile 
accident, sat in a wheelchair with 
a plaque presented by Baseball 
Commissioner Bowie Kuhn and 

"Regardless of my being here 
today, in wheelchair, this is one 
of the gn est days in my life. To- 
day means so much to me." 

Stan "The Man" who played the 
outfield and first base for the St. 
Louis Cardinals for 22 years, al- 
most broke down as he recalled 
his boyhood in the steel town of 
Donora, Pa. 

"My father," he said, "was a 
Polish immigrant and a great base- 
ball fan. I always remember him 
talking about Babe Ruth. The 
Musials wer" poor people then, and 
I remember that my first toy was 
a baseball." 

Coveleski, a slender, white hair- 
ed man who w n 216 games during 
13 seasons ir the American Lea- 
gue in the eaiiy 1900s, choked up 

after his introduction and almost 
couldn't continue. 

He recalled working from sun 
up to sundown for $3.75 a week as 
a coal miner at his native Shamo- 
kin, Pa. He said he learned to 
pitch by throwing stones at a can 
tied to a tree. 

Hoyt, the famous Yankee right- 
hander who won 237 games in a 21- 
year career in the majors, said, 
"It is a special privilege to be 
associated with these men in the 
Hall of Fame, a special privilege to 
be here today with men like Roy 
Campanella and Stan Musial." 

Hoyt, who became a baseball 
sportscaster after he left the game, 
credited "everyone I ever came in 
contact with" for his elevation to 
the Hall of Fame. 

He paid special tribute "to the 
teammates who bolstered my spir- 
its and to the fans who gave me 
a boost when I was feeling down." 

Umbrellas blossomed from time 
to time in the crowd as an inter- 
mittent drizzle fell, but it didn't 
dampe n the spirits of the specta- 
tors. One Musial fan held a card- 
board sign reading: "to Stan the 
Man from South St. Louis," and 
another Cardinal booster wore a 
straw hat with a red bird perched 
on top. 

Commissioner Kuhn introduced 
19 Hall of Fame members who were 
on the speakers stand. Two of 
baseball's most colorful figures, 
Dizzy Dean and Casey Stengel, 
drew the loudest applause. Mrs. 
Babe Ruth sat in a front row with 
her daugher, and also got a big 

Pats when he was injured. 

Cincinnati said the Pats knew 
about the injury before the draft. 
Boston said it happened in Cincin- 
nati. All the while Boudreaux 
remained on the Pats' payroll. 

Koontz, a second- year man from 
Catawba, was the 17th round pick 
last year and was used sparingly. 

The continued cutting of veterans 
by Rush is strong evidence of the 
changes taking place at UMass. 

Several new offensive wrinkles 
are in store for the Boston Pa- 
triots this year. Coach Clive 
Rush is implementing the system 
used by the New York Jets and 
he's starting from the ground 
floor before the team moves up. 

Veterans are back in school 
with notebooks full of new offen- 
sive formations and plays. Pro- 
gress is slow with some refine- 
ment being added daily. 

This Jet system has many vari- 
ations for all personnel and pro- 
vides an excellent setup for a 

Mike Taliaferro, who is cur- 
rently running first in the fourway 
quarterback race, has experience 
with the new offense. He worked 
with it while under- studying Joe 
Namath at New York. 

"There are so many things you 
can do with an offense like this - 
it's ideal" says Taliaferro. Asked 
if the Patriots might have been 
tied down by Mike Holovak's sys- 
tem last year, Taliaferro hedged 
saying: "I don't want to say 


Mike's system was good or bad. I 
don't feel qualified. That's a ques- 

tion which should be 
guys who have been 

given to the 
around four 

or five years. . .1 think I know 
what the answer will be." 

Maybe the answer lies in the 
pickup of spirit evidenced in the 
training camp at the University of 
Massachusetts. Veterans agree 
that a change had to be made, and 
though they are finding the trans- 
ition tough, are hustling to get the 
new system refined. 

In yesterday's no-holds-barred 
scrimmage, Taliaferro uncorked a 
40 yard touchdown pass near the 
end to Aaron Marsh, who caught 
two on the day. 

Marsh's other TD reception was 
a 35-yarder from Sherman, who 
was inserted into the session after 
Taliaferro started. Sherman com- 
pleted eight of 13 passes on the 
day. Taliaferro likes the compe- 
tition for the quarterback job. "I 
think it helps me knowing that 
somebody else is trying for my 
job," he says. Last year it was 
a little different because Talia- 
ferro knew the iob was his. 

Around mid-season he developed 
a sore shoulder-a shoulder bruise 
it was termed- and Tom Sherman 
took over the calling duties. Tal- 
iaferro became a forgotten man. 

Now he's striving to win the 
position back, knowing he has the 
jump in experience with the new 
system. "I didn't start throwing 
until May" explains Taliaferro 
(pronounced Toliver). "I just took 
it easy but now I'm throwing hard. 
My arm feels as good as ever and 
I'm not holding anything back." 

Approximately 3,000 spectators 
watched the Pats' offense roll up 

a 23-0 score in yesterday's game 
with Gino Cappelletti booting three 
field goals, two from 20 yards out 
and another from the 35-yard line. 
He missed a 36-yarder. 


Coach Rush said the session was 
'a little crisper". However, He 
reserved full judgment until re- 
viewing the game films tongiht. 
Several cuts are expected in the 
early part of this week. 

Jim Nancy carried six times for 
33 yards in his first contact work 
and also snared a swing pass for 
16 yards. Another pass, this one 
a 50-yarder, was intercepted by 
linebacker Ed Philpott when it was 

Nance said afterwards that his 
ankle "felt better than at anytime 
last year, I was able to cut on it 
and run heavy on it. I think it's 
going to be all right now." 

Defensive lineman Larry Eisen- 
hauer and safety John Charles, two 
other players who underwent post- 
season operations, also showed 
well yesterday, along with running 
backs R.C. Gamble and Sid Banks. 
Daryl Johnson and rookie George 
Muse came up with interceptions. 

Jim Whalen led the pass re- 
ceivers with six receptions. Marsh 
and Tom "The Glove" Richardson 
hauled in four apice. 

Open House Policy is Set; Judiciary to Hear Cases 

Delays Discussed at Whitmore 

Summer Senate Adopts 
Administration Policy 

The Summer Senate gave in to Administration pressure over 
open house at its meeting Tuesday night, and, in so doing, went 
against its own declaration, made a week earlier, not to enforce 
administration decrees which are not approved by students. 

The Senate passed a motion "reluctantly recommending" that 
all houses set up open house systems which are within the Trus- 
tee guidelines as stated in the Student Handbook. 

In the rationale behind passing this motion, it was argued by 
several Senators, and notably by Senator Flink, that this was an 
expedient measure, one which was deemed necessary "by the ad- 
ministration's apparent desire to suspend open house." 

Senate President Dave Stevens was the only legislator to vote 
against the bill, and did so "as a matter of principle." He ex- 
plained his reasoning this way: 

"The Senate effectively reversed last Tuesday's openhouse ac- 
tion in recommending a rubber-stamping of the archaic policy 
set forth in the Student Handbook. It is unfortunate that the Senate 
openly legislated expedience." 

In other senate business, the legislative body put off for one 
week a motion condemning the Summer Arts Program Council 
for its handling of the Allen Ginsberg reading. 

This action was taken so that an ad -hoc investigative committee 
can hold an open meeting to discuss the planning of that event and 
other Summer Arts events. AH students dissatisfied with the 
Summer Program are urged by committee members to attend 
the meeting tonight at 7:30, in the Council Chambers of the Union. 

The Senate also passed a bill which endorses WMUA's attempt 
to gain a power increase. This proposal was originally OK'ed 
by the Senate last spring, but was put off by the University's 
Board of Trustees. 

Whitmore Reporter 

"With time running out, there is no time to be confused." 

With that, Dean of Students William F. Field called students and administrators to Whitmore yes- 
terday, in order to "clear up any misunderstandings about the open house policy which have arisen, 
and to make sure that the policy and its enforcement will be implemented immediately." 

The students attending the meet- 
ing agreed that, with the summer 
rapidly coming to an end, no more 
delays could be tolerated, and they 
informed Field that the Summer 
Judicial system was finally about to 
get off the ground. 

"The Circuit Court wiU meet to- 
morrow," Student Senator Charles 
Flink told Field, "and it will decide 
the priorities involved in the back- 
log of cases." 

To date, there are 15 students 
awaiting judicial action, most for 
open bouse violations. 

The court will inform students 
facing judicial action of the date 
of their hearings and the place 
later this week. When possible, 
the circuit court will assign cases 
to house judiciaries in const! tuanc- 
ies where those courts have been

Both Field and Flink agreed that 
time is a key factor in the hearing 
of the cases. 

"We are most concerned with 
moving on with this (hearing the 
backlog of cases) ... we don't 
want to have any cases hang on 
into the Fall," Field told the stu- 
dents and administrators. 

"There are really only two weeks 
left to hear cases," the Dean of

"It is important to give each 
student the opportunity to have time 
to appeal the decision of the circuit 
court if he so chooses. This means 
that the cases already waiting to 
be heard must be taken very short- 
ly," Field went on to say. 

As yet, there is no established 
Superior court to hear student 
appeals, and while it will probably 
be set up in the next day or so, 
the University Judicial Board would 
have to hear any appeals if the 
court is not established in time. 

Field underscored the impor- 
tance of havinc a functioning Stu- 

dent judicial system when he said, 
"It is important that judicial pro- 
cess be given to students so that 
they will have the opportunity to 
be heard at their peer level on 
violations of administrative rul- 

Field expressed his concern o- 
ver the delay surrounding the es- 
tablishment of student judicial and 
governing bodies this summer and 
expressed his desire that next 
year's summer school will be bet- 
ter organized, so "that developing 
structure s will not stall normal 

The nature of the open house 
policy was also discussed at the 
meeting, with Field explaining that, 
while a change in the official sch- 
ool policy is forthcoming, the on- 
ly policy now accepted by the Board 
of Trustees is the one outlined in 
the Student Handbook. 

The Summer Senate Tuesday 
night reluctantly agreed to rec- 
ommend that all houses adopt this 
policy and all six residence halls

UMass Boston Building 
May Be Delayed as 
Sarge Asks for $50M. 

News Editor 

In 1964, the Massachusetts Legislature approved a Boston campus for 
UMass, and yesterday Governor Francis W. Sargent stated, "it is 
time for us to act to translate the dream of a permanent Boston cam- 
pus for the University of Massachusetts into reality." 

THE CAGE, The University's great landmark, is undergoing a facelifting this summer. A new 
glass and steel roof is replacing the leaky structure which provided the Redman basketball team with 
a home court disadvantage last year. The Cage will be completed early in September, and will be 
ready for Homecoming concerts. 

However, news of definite ac- 
tion became tainted when the Gov- 
ernor asked the legislature for 
only a $50 million bond authori- 
zation, after University officials 
has requested $150 million for the 
new Columbia Point campus. Uni- 
versity planners had submitted 
this figure as the amount needed 
to establish a three year build- 
ing program housing 5,000 stu-r 
dents by 1972, and to begin to 
prepare for a projected enrollment 
of 15,000 by 1980. 

After the Legislature approved a 
Boston campus in 1964 it moved to 
purchase a temporary site, the 
old Boston Gas building in Park 
Square, known to the students as 
"Mass Gas." However, because 
of the increase in school enroll- 
ment from 1200 to 3500 since 1965, 
acute growing pains have affected 
this metropolitan university. 

Hayakawa Reappointment Forebodes S.F. State Trouble 

PATRIOTS QUARTERBACKS-Left to right: Tom Sherman, Kim Hammond, Mike Taliaferro and Onree 
Jackson. The Patriots are continuing their drills at UMass and yesterday made five cuts. As soon as 
the sun bursts forth (if it ever does), we'll be able to present some action photos of the drills. 

Francisco State College "surely 
will explode again mis fall under 
his repressive leadership," says 
the joint statement by the Calif- 
ornia State Colleges' two major 
faculty organizations. 

The he is S. I. Hayakawa, re- 
cently appointed permanent presi- 
dent of the college. The organ- 
izations expressing alarm at his 
appointment are the American 
Federation of Teachers and the 
Association of California State 

College Professors. 

"I think it's fair to say that 
internal democracy is now dead 
in the California State Colleges," 
said one AFT leader. 

Most students who participated 
in last winter's strike, however, 
are indifferent to the appointment, 
according to the student newspa- 
per, The Daily Gater. Students 
are saying that any administrator 
named by the big business orien- 
ted trustees would be the same as 
Hayakawa, the newspaper reports. 

"The reason the ruling class is 
becoming more open in their dic- 
tatorship is not because Hayakawa 
and Reagan are just nastier guys 
than Summer skill (former presi- 
dent) and Alioto (San Francisco 
mayor), but because the whole 
class of rich businessmen who run 
the country are afraid of people 
organizing to fight racism and im- 
perialism," said one SDS leader. 

Some people don't believe Haya- 
kawa will stay long. They believe 
the president, who has made seven 
nationwide speaking tours since the 

student strike turned him into 
a news personality, will run for 
the U. S. Senate against incum- 
bent George Murphy next year on 
the Democratic ticket. Hayakawa 
has spent just enough time on 
campus to get the permanent job; 
the rest he has spent politicking. 
The Daily Gater reports. 

Meanwhile, the Gater Itself is 
preparing for a complete lack of 
support from the Hayakawa admin- 
istration. Hayakawa unsuccess- 
fully suspended the paper. 

The pressure mounted while id- 
eas were being considered for lo- 
cating the University's permanent 
site. With no place to go, the 
renting or purchasing of more 
temporary buildings in the neigh- 
borhood was necessitated, primar- 
Uy the old Prudential Insurance 
office and the cadet Arlington Ar- 

After receiving the go-ahead 
from the legislature five years 
ago, UMass officials attempted to 
place the campus downtown, allow- 
ing students to benefit from a com- 
pletely urban environment. Ques- 
tions were raised about the intown 
proposal during the site battle 
concerning tax losses from the re- 
location of businesses and several 
further problems the plan would 

The trustees finally chose Col- 
umbia Point, a former dump site, 
which was referred to by the 
Wednesday's BOSTON GLOBE as, 
"a seaside section of Boston." 

Approval of the Columbia Point 
site also as created problems 
concerning the transportation of 
students to the campus. The ma- 
jority of UMass Boston students 
are commuters, but no commuting 
faculties equal to the expected 
student load are available now at 
the site. 

To deal with this problem Sar- 
gent has also requested a $25,000 
appropriation to fund a joint study 
by the University and the MBTA. 

A spokesman for the University 
in Boston stated that the cutback 
could mean the setback for the 
completion date. 



Children Learn to Work, Play at UMass Speech Clinic 



In a classroom decorated with 
paper roses a group of children 
present a musical pageant before 
an audience of parents and teach- 

The unusual part is that the young 
singers are cleft palate children, 
afflicted with one of the most crip- 
pling speech defects. The pageant 
ended an unusual, intensive pro- 
gram of concentrated speech ther- 
apy for cleft palate children at the 
UMass Communication Disorders 
Clinic this summer. 

"Two things made this program 
different," said Dr. Inez Hegarty, 
clinic supervisor. ' One is that the 
therapy was concentrated in three- 
hour sessions three times a week. 
The other was the experimental 
team teaching approach we used." 

The two are in some ways inter- 
dependent, she added. For one 
thing, a small child's attention 
span can seldom last the length 
of a full three-hour therapy ses- 
sion. Team teaching rotates the 
child from one team to another 
each hour and keeps his attention 
fresh, Miss Hegarty explained. 

The 14 children came from a 
50- mile radius of Amherst and 
were driven in by their parents 
for the Monday-Wednesday-Fri- 
day sessions from 1 to 4 p.m. 
Members of the teaching teams 
were 10 undergraduate and grad- 

uate speech therapy students at 
UMass. The program was con- 
ducted in cooperation with the 
Services for Crippled Children of 
the Massachusetts Department of 
Public Health. 

A cleft palate is a congenital 
physical disability. The cause is 
not fully understood, but its effect 
on speech is a difficulty with 

Along with straight speech ther- 
apy, the UMass teachers gave the 
children generous amounts of the 
warmth and understanding that all 
children need. "I've learned that 
a handicapped person needs a large 
measure of love and encourage- 
ment," one student teacher com- 

The pageant that closed the ses- 
sion was an example of this. "This 
kind of performance gives them a 
chance to play and perform as o- 
ther children do," said Miss Heg- 

As an experience, the concen- 
trated summer session was very 
successful, she said. Comments 
by parents of children who at- 
tended reflected the same idea. 
"It has given our child a chance 
to play and get along with other 
children," one parent said. "Our 
child has lost some of her shy- 
ness," another said.

The Martin Luther King, Jr. So- 
cial Action Council will present 
two films Friday, Saturday, and 
Sunday night, Aug. 8-10 in Mahar 
Auditorium at 8 p.m. 

The first, titled simply "Yippie 
Film," is a spoof on the Chicago 
street scene during the 1968 Dem- 
ocratic National Convention. Al- 
though the film is very funny, it 
has a bitter sweet quality resulting 
from its satire on the viciousness 
of that violent week. 

The feature film is entitled "The 
Troublemakers." A 1965 docu- 
mentary, it shows how a group of 
white organizers went into Newark, 
New Jersey's central ward to work 
with the Black corr —^ity, forming 
the Newark Communuy Union Pro- 
ject as a base. It clearly shows 
the futility and frustration of at- 
tempting to use traditional meth- 
ods of protest such as letters to 
city officials, picketing, and elec- 
toral politics. After a year's time, 
the city had still granted none of 
the community's requests. Ten 
months later, the central ward ex- 

Discussion sessions will follow 
the films each night for those who 
wish to participate. A small con- 
tribution will be requested at the 

ploded into Newark riots of 1967. 
The film shows clearly how estab- 
lished political methods often close 
all doors to change, frequently 
leaving violent confrontation as the 
only feasable alternative.

School of Education Recruits 
For Teachers Corps Program 

The Center For International 
Education at the UMass School ol 
Education and the National Teach- 
er Corps have combined efforts 
to develop a model curriculum 
in African Studies for public sch- 

Thirty returned Peace Corps 
Volunteers who have served in 
Africa are being recruited to be- 
gin planning the model curriculum 
this fall at the UMass School of 
Education in Amherst. In Janu- 
ary, the returned PCV's will be- 
gin teaching African Studies in the 
Worcester public school system. 

The curriculum will be taught 
in kindergarten through Grade 12 in 
the Worcester schools and will co- 
ver history, music, art, drama, 
and related subjects for the entire 
continent of Africa. According to 
Mrs. Cynthia Shepard, director of 
the program, "it is not a black 
identity program but an academic 
studies program for all students." 

One major purpose of the pro- 
ject is to dispel myths which pre- 
sently exist about the African con- 
tinent. Mrs. Shepard explains 
that the outdated materials and 
methods used by many school sys- 
tems help create such myths. 

The program is supported by 
funds from the Teacher Corps 
which is sponsored by the United 
States Office of Education. The 30 
Peace Corps returnees will live 
in Worcester during the period 
the y will be teaching there and 
be involved in community activit- 
ies such as adult education. 

Alumni Magazine 
Wins Photo Award 

The Massachusetts Alumnus has 
been awarded a certificate of ach- 
ievement in the annual photogra- 
phy awards competition of the Am- 
erican Alumni Council. 

The UMass alumni magazine re- 
ceived the award for its January 
cover photo, taken by Dr. Richard 
W. Wilkie, UMass assistant pro- 
fessor of geography. The picture 
was part of a collection featured 
in the January issue and titled 
"Latin American Faces." 

The collection was selected by 
Katie S. Giiimor, Alumnus edit- 
or, from pictures that Dr. Wilkie 
took in Latin America while work- 
ing on his dissertation, entitled 
"On a Theory of Migration: A 
Case Study of Rural Argentina." 

The award -winning photo, "The 
Aged," shows an old man and wo- 
man staring blankly out of the win- 
dow of a simple room. 

The former PCV's will also take 
in-service courses at the UMass 
School of Education and at the end 
of three semesters will be eligi- 
ble for a master's degree in edu- 
cation and teaching certification. 

Mrs. Shepard, who is serving 
as a Crossroads Africa teacher 
at the University of Nairobi in 
Kenya this summer, is recruiting 
Peace Corps Volunteers who are 
still in Africa for this special 
Teacher Corps project. She will 

also travel to collect curriculum 
materials and African artifacts 
which will be used to build a re- 
source center on African culture at 
the School of Education. 

Further information concerning 
the UMass/Teacher Corps Pro- 
gram may be obtained from David 
Schimmel, director of the Center 
For International Education, or Joe 
Blackman, associate director. 

Porter Named Editor of Journal 

Robert S. Porter has been named

years of industrial research with 
the Chevron Research Co. in Rich- 
mond, Calif., as well as five years 
of polymer research at UMass. 
Along with Dr. Richard S. Stein, 
he helped to establish the polymer 
science and engineering program 
at UMass. An industrial con- 
sultant, Dr. Porter has written 
90 publications and co -edited three 
books in the genera 1 fields of 
rheology, physical chemistry, and

Dr. Porter lives on Rolling Ridge 

Rd. in Amherst with his wife 
Catharine, who is an instructor 
in home economics at UMass. 
He is the father of two daughters, 
Laura Jean and Ruth Anne. 

Monday night University residents who attended Japanese Night at 
the Berkshire Club Room of the university campus were able to par- 
ticipate in a traditional Japanese folk dance. The 40 Japanese students 
who hav e spent four weeks in Amherst organized the night's enter- 
tainment to express their appreciation of the hospitality they have re- 
ceived. A Judo demonstration was also staged. Spectators were in- 
trigued by the participants' skill and dexterity.

College Presidents 
Are Difficult to Find 

(Ed. Note: In the wake of the recent resignation of UMass President 
John W. Lederle, we are reprinting Mr. Roche's column from the 
Springfield Daily News) 

WASHINGTON - One problem area in American higher education that 
has not received sufficient attention is the acute shortage of candidates 
for college presidencies and deanships. 

Figures vary somewhat, but it would seem that about 200 colleges and 
universities are seeking presidents, and the number of empty offices 
awaiting deans may range as high as 2,000. 

Columbia Cornell, Pennsylvania, Dartmouth, Duke - to mention only 
a few of the most prestigious institutions - all have committees in- 
dustriously screening candidates. Since they operate like the govern- 
ment in never making a hard offer until they are certain it will be ac- 
cepted, there is little information available on turndowns. 

However, a friend who was sounded out by several schools suggests 
they are having real touble. He thanked them but politely, informed the 
search committees that he would sooner join the Marmes - "There 
you get medals for valor." 

Finding a ne w president used to be rather simple. The board of 
trustees merely settled on a man it liked and trusted, and that was that. 
It was not a model system by any means, but at least it provided presi- 

Now we have participatory bureaucracy: Everybody gets into the 
act. In addition to the trustees, the alumni, the faculty, and often the 
students are involved. The result is chaos. 

A university president today has an unenviable set of obligations. 
His primary task is to raise money either from private donors or, in 
public institutions, from the legislature and ultimately the taxpayers. 

To keep his school going, he may have to raise as much as 80 per 
cent of his annual budget; even the biggest endowments provide only a 
small fraction of yearly costs. 

The young, of course, despise fund-raising and the faculty, while 
eager enough for annual raises, looks with Olympian contempt on a 
fund-raiser. It is therefore sudden death to announce to a joint select- 
ion committee that a candidate can raise money. 

The president is also supposed to be an educator, an administrator, 
a psychiatrist, and - increasingly - a frontier sheriff. As recent sad 
events indicate, he needs the constitution of an ox and ideally no nerves 
at all. 

Finally, he needs the moral fiber of a Christian martyr because no 
matter what he does, at least half of his constituents are going to de- 
nounce him as a traitor. 

He can well expect the ultimate situation where the faculty and stu- 
dents are vilifying him for selling out to the board of trustees and 
alumni, and simultaneously the trustees and alumni are reviling him 
for capitulating to the faculty and student. 

Given these variables, it is hardly surprising that there is a short- 
age of presidents. In fact, one could almost argue that a man's will- 
ingness to become a college president should automatically disqualify 

But still the hopeful committees rush to thtir work in a pattern that 
is virtually as stereotyped as Russian ballet. 

The committee meets bubbling with energy a.nd goodwill. Its first 
job is to prepare the ideal list of candidates, and to everyone's de- 
light this is accomplished with minimum argument and friction. The 
list will include McGeorge Bundy, John Gardner, Kenneth Clark, 
Pope Paul. Whitney Young, Arthur Goldberg, and Ed Muskie. 

The committee adjourns to have these luminaries "felt out" and meets 
again several months later to learn, with some shock, that there were 
no nibbles. 

A new list has to be worked out and at this level tensions begin to 
rise: The trustees reject several prominent academic "dissenters," 
the faculty stonewaUs a few "military- industrial complexers", the 
students hold a mass meeting in behalf of Herbert Marcuse. it'gecs 
stickier and stickier. 

Six months later in desperation an acting president is appointed 
from within the institution. Somebody has to keep the store, and since 
nobody expected much from him, his reputation begins to rise when 
life goes on without disaster. 

Sargent Promises More 
Cutbacks for State 

Gov. Francis W. Sargent and the Legislature have finally reached the 
end of the long tax-pay raise road. And the results leave something to 
be desired. 

Both the governor and legislators recognized that a tax increase was 
inevitable because of the continuing state financial crisis. And, although 
there were some differences in approach, a tax package was agreed on 
which will provide an estimated $100 million in new revenue. 

However, Gov. Sargent and the Legislature came to a parting of the 
ways on a pay raise for state employees. The governor vetoed a $92 
million pay increase package, but legislators responded by over- 
whelmingly overriding the veto to make the salary increase official. 

Now, however. Gov. Sargent has said he will be forced to retaliate 
against what he termed a "preposterous" pay raise by imposing "very 
severe cuts on future state services." 

This financial tug- of- war between the chief executive and the Legis- 
lature can be viewed in one sense as a warmup for the state elections 
next year in which a Republican governor will be pitted against Demo- 
cratic forces. 

In the more immediate context, however, the political ramifications 
of this tug-of-war are secondary to the state services which will be 
^rt by n. 

The governor has warned, for example, that the University of Massa- 
chusetts, which has made supplementary budget requests, will have to 
be "severely cut back." The unfortunate part of this is that cuts in 
the UMass request will imperil academic and other programs at the 
state university. 

While some degree of political maneuvering between the governor and 
the Legislature is inevitable, it must be hoped that state services will 
not become the "whipping boy" in this financial dispute.

Hampshire County Jail Inmates 
Want Educational Opportunities 

NORTHAMPTON - "Every so- 
ciety is confronted with the prob- 
lem of what to do with the people 
in it who can't get along with the 
rest. There has to be a place 
to put the individuals who are de- 
termined only to hurt the others. 

"The needs of civilization re- 
quire that a place be provided 
for the people not willing to meet 
the terms of the work "civilized" 
but this can be dangerous. An 
animal turns vicious when caged 
and left alone long enough." 
19-Year -Old-Author 

So wrote Michael Grover, of 
Pittsfield, 19-year-old editor of 
"Union House", the newspaper 
published by the inmates of the 
Hampshire County House of Cor- 

In the latest issue of the jail 
newspaper, Grover, who is serving 
time on a narcotics violation, ad- 
vocate's expanding the jail's pres- 
ent work-release program to in- 
clude a school-release program. 

Under the guidance of John F. 
Boyle high sheriff of Hampshire 
County, approximately 40 inmates 
of the Northampton facility have 
participated in the work-release 
program since its inception July 
1, 1968. 

Financial Base 

Work release, according to Gro- 
ver, lets a person earn his own 
way, support his family, if he has 
one, and gives him a financial base 
on which to establish himself when 
he gets out. 

Under the program, the men 
leave the jail in the morning to go 
to a regular job, and come back 
at night to sleep in the jail. In- 

mates from the Hampshire County 

Jail have worked in local factor- 
ies, tobacco fields, diners, and the 
Northampton State Hospital. 

"The inmate is given limited 
and definite responsibilities to be 
faithful to," Grover said. "A cer- 
tain integration of society and the 
penal community is established, 
which gradually lets the prisoner 
develop and maintain the respon- 
sibility, which is necessary for 
the fulfillment of his role within 
society when he gets out. 

If he doesn't develop this when 
he's in, then he'll be back if he 
does, then he won't. 

2 Tried Escape 

According to Sheriff Boyle, only 
two of the participants of the work - 
release program, so far, have used 
the opportunity to attempt escape. 
Both men were recaptured within 
two days. 

Boyle is a firm supporter of the 
proposed school-release program. 
Under this program, certain in- 
mates would be allowed to leave 
the jail in the morning to attend 
a school, then return to the jail 
at night. 

Many of the inmates feel that 
a school release program would be 
more Important than the work re- 
lease program for certain persons. 
Sees the Need 

"The school-release program 
means that an inmate sees the 
need to develop himself intellect- 
ually, and it means that he re- 
cognizes the power of education 
In today's world. It is also his 
chance to capitalize on an op- 
portunity to further his education 
and to develop himself for his role 

on the outside," Grover said. 

". . .This is what the world 
"Correctional" in correctional in- 
stitutions should be all about." 

Boyle explained that four or five 
years ago there were inmates who 
were not able to make out an ap- 
plication. Seven Northampton tea- 
chers voluntarily came to the jail 
to teach basic courses. For the 
past few years the Massachusetts 
Rehabilitation Program has paid 
for the services of teachers in 
the jail. 

Four Sisters 

Currently four sisters from the 
order of St. Joseph in Springfield 
have been teaching English and 
math courses in the House of Cor- 

"The work they have done this 
summer has just been wonderful," 
Boyle said. "They are teaching 
studies which these boys could use 
immediately when they go out." 

Concerning the school release 
program, Grover said that "It 
would provide that important 
middle point between total incar- 
ceration and total freedom, which 
private institutions cannot enforce 
and most public institutions do not 
provide for. It would allow for a 
phasing stage into society, which 
can let the inmate do more than 
sit in his cell and rot. 

Boyle is hopeful that the Hamp- 
shire County House of Correction 
will be able to implement the 
school release program this fall. 
However, it will probably take a 
late -filed bill in the Legislature, 
and then legislative approval, to 
give the program its final green 

Army Lists Dissention Restrictions 

Army has produced a memorandum 
to its commanders concerning con- 
trolling the growing dissent from 
within the military. 

The memorandum, released by 
LINK, the Serviceman's Link to 
Peace, deals with GI papers, dis- 
tribution of materials, coffee hou- 
ses, the GI union, and demonstra- 
tions. It is vague in most areas, 
leaving the decisions on GI rights 
primarily in the hands of the com- 
manding officers. 

The five-page memo in part 
states "The right to express opin- 
ions on matters of public and per- 
sonal concern Is secured to sold- 
ier and civilian alike by the Con- 
stitution of the United States. This 
right, however, is not absolute for 
either soldier or civilian. . . In 
particular the Interest of the Gov- 
ernment and the public in the 

maintenance of an effective and 
disciplined Army for the purpose 
of national defense justifies certain 
restraints upon the activities of 
military personnel which need not 
be imposed on similar activities 
by civilians. 

"Severe disciplinary response 
to a relatively insignificant man- 
ifestation of dissent can have a 
counter-productive effect on other 
members of the Command, because 
the reaction appears out of pro- 
portion to the threat which the 
dissent represents. Thus, rather 
than serving as a deterrent, such 
disproportionate actions may sti- 
mulate further breaches of disci- 
pline. On the other hand, no Com- 
mander should be indifferent to 
conduct which, if allowed to pro- 
ceed unchecked, would destroy the 

effectiveness of the unit. In the 
final analysis no regulations or 
guidelines are an adequate sub- 
stitute for the calm and prudent 
judgment of the responsible Com- 

The memo says that in some 
cases GI coffee houses and under- 
ground newspapers are tolerable, 
as long as they are conducted off- 
base. Distribution of materials 
on-base, however, can be "de- 
layed" by commanders if a publi- 
cation "presents a clear danger to 
the loyalty, discipline, or morale" 
of the troops. LINK leaders 
maintain that while the ambiguous 
language In the memorandum lea- 
ves plenty of leeway in the Army's 
attempt "to crush dissent, the very 
fact that they feel constrained to 
confront the issues raised by think- 
ing servicemen is a sign of the 
impact such activities arehavlng." 

DeDe, a blind musician, came onto the 
stage and began playing his trumpet. It 
was not long before the 73 kids from the 
Amherst College ABC summer program be- 
gan clapping their hands and tapping their 
feet in rhythm. Perhaps these black teen- 
agers were surprised at the fact they en- 
joyed the music so much— many of them 
had to be cojoled into going to the perfor- 
mance in the first place-- but once there, 
they yielded to the frantic blaring of old- 
time jazz just as their grandfathers had 
before them. 

Similar occurrences have been common 
not only in ABC (A Better Chance) but 
also in the two other programs, SATP 
(Smith-Amherst Tutorial Project) and ETI 
(English Teachers Institute) which com- 
prise the Amherst Summer Action Pro- 
grams (ASAP). The first two programs are 
designed to upgrade the education of dis- 
advantaged students, while ETI hopes to pro- 
mote more effective ways of teaching Eng- 
lish among teachers in Springfield sec- 
ondary schools. 

ABC, as part of an English class, was 
taken to the University of Massachusetts 
to hear a half dozen members of "Pre- 
servation Hall," a jazz band from New 
Orleans. The purpose of the exercise was 
to get the youngsters to write their feel- 
ings about the show when they returned to 
the Amherst campus. 

Randall Forrest, 31. a fire hydrant of a 
wrestler who competed in the Olympic 
trials, is the director of Amherst's ABC 
program. He laughingly recalled: "I 
almost had to physically put some of those 
kids on the bus. They didn't like the idea 
of listening to a band in which the young- 
est player was 75 years old." Later on 
during the performance Forrest noticed 
one thirteen year old, who was particular- 
ly excited about the show but who had not 
wanted to go in the beginning. "I know at 
least one fellow who didn't want to come to 
this" Randy said to him. A self-conscious 
reply came back, "Well, I didn't want to 
be a bump on a log." 

In ABC English classes, much of the teach- 
ing is done by having the youngsters listen 
to music. "We want to get these young- 
sters to express themselves," teacher Rob 
Riordan explained, "and music is more 
likely to interest them than literature. We 
hope that after learning to express them- 
selves, they will gain self-confidence and 
this will help them in all of their school 

"At the Preservation Hall performance," 
Riordan continued, "we did another one of 
our evedropping assignments. We sent six 
students as photographers, and the rest as 

reporters. We had been using polaroid 
cameras in our classes before so we just 
took them to the jazz show." 

The members of the jazz band were so 
interested in the impressions of the young 
ABC students that they are going to pay 
12 of them $5 apiece to write these impres- 
sions down. 

"Preservation Hall" plans to use the ma- 
terial for advertising, and afterwards it 
will be sent to Tulane University where it 
will be added to a file on jazz and thoughts 
about it. "In other words, Randy Forrest 
added, "some of these kids are already 
'professionals' since they're getting paid 
for their writing." 

In their class after the jazz concert, the 
ABC students did a reporting job of the 
event. They wrote a narrative describing 
what happened, using the polaroid shots to 
illustrate it. They also wrote their im- 
pressions, or feelings about the whole thing. 
On DeDe, the blind musician, Don Wynn, 
13, wrote, "even though my eyes are closed, 
by using my mind and remembering dif- 
ferent things, different places, and differ- 
ent faces I can picture them (the audience) 
as though I were seeing them through open 

Mark Anthony Von Wilson, 13 wrote, 
"The band enters and begins to play. 
Suddenly I get a strange feeling that I 
seem to be getting old, turning blind, and 
playing a trumpet. On the next song I 
respond with my trumpet. I must be 
DeDe. As DeDe I can almost feel the 
music around me. I really understand 
the music because not being able to read 
it, it must be in my heart. After hearing 
the people clap, I feel as though I can al- 
most see heaven." 

Other comments were: "DeDe is a fine 
example of what courage and fortitude can 
produce. They feel sorry for me because 
they THINK I'm blind. Yes I'm blind in 
their world, but not in mine. I can see 
when I'm playing but when I stop, I enter 
my realm of darkness once more." 

As if any elucidation were needed, Di- 
rector Forrest pointed out, "These stor- 
ies were written by ghetto youngsters who 
supposedly come from 'disadvantaged' 
backgrounds. But you can see that they 
have sensitive insight and are able to 
express it, if they can be drawn out. 
This is what we're trying to do in ABC." 

In SATP, the focus is on developing youths 
who are not necessarily collegebound but 
who have shown a desire to take on re- 
sponsibilities in their own neighborhoods. 
For this reason, they are being tutored 
in English and mathematics primarily, 

although several electives are also open 
to them. Marge Coffing, an SATP Eng- 
lish teachers, believes that the prime ob- 
ject of the program is to "give these stu- 
dents something transferable. The Eng- 
lish classes continue to probe new areas, 
ones which are different from what these 
youngsters are used to." 

Recently, some classes have read works 
such as "Flying Home" by Ralph Elli- 
son or "Son in the Afternoon" by John 
A. Williams. 

"From stories like these, the students 
see different points of view, and how a 
person's background affects his whole life. 
By learning to understand other people and 
even sympathize with them, these boys and 
girls are expanding their knowledge and en- 
joyment of life." 

Mrs. Isabelle Arnold, also a English tea- 
cher, stresses the importance of impro- 
visational plays and role playing as being 
an interesting way to teach English. "The 
students are getting a lot out of it. Try- 
ing to teach grammar in the old fashion 
way is not an effective way of interesting 
these youngsters to read and write. They 
are not as responsive to poetry (due to 
lack of exposure to it, especially black 
poetrv) as thev are to improvisations." 

SATP student Farris castleterry agrees. 
"I can express myself a little bit better 
because of the improvisations we do in 
class. I'm not limited because of my 
grammar and spelling." 

SATP math classes have a student- 
teacher ratio of about 3-1, which provides 
the students with ample access to their 
teachers . As in the English course, some 
of the students are getting credit at their 
high schools for this math course. Jean 
Fugett, an Amherst College sophomore who 
tutors in math, finds that "for these chil- 
dren, math can be an impossible language 
to learn. For that reason we are trying 
to put it into their own language. We're 
not throwing alotoftechnicaltermsatthem, 
but instead we're concentrating on the fund- 
amentals of math. We try to explain the 
logic in terms they already know." 

One of the elective courses in SATP is 
chemistry, which is taught by Doug Jacobs, 
Amherst '69, who is surprised at the prog- 
ress his students have been making. "This 
course is really a pre-chemistry course. 
The students are going much faster than I 
thought they would. They will know the 
basics of chemistry before they start it in 
school. They are extremely responsive and 

In summarizing the progress of SATP on 
the Amherst campus, Director Tracy Mehr, 
Professor of Physical Education at the Col- 
lege, mused: "Through a period of test- 
ing and even trial and error, tutors and 
students have begun to shed the role play- 
ing of the first three weeks and are get- 
ting down to cooperative efforts directed 
toward individual development." 

Whereas ABC and SATP are designed for 
disadvantaged students, ETI (English Tea- 
chers Institute) hopes to promote better 
teaching of English among high school 
teachers. For this reason 30 Springfield 
teachers and para-professionals are par- 
ticipating in a Program Directed by Pro- 
fessors Robert C. Townsend, Leo Marx, 
and William Heath. 

Townsend explained the fundamental pur- 
pose of ETI as "we want to DO what other 
institutions have talked about. For in- 
stance, instead of reading about a school 
committee meeting, we did an improvised 
drama using a school committee meeting 
as the spring board." 

In ETI, the teachers experience the kind 
of projects they will later ask their stud- 
ents to do. In this way, they develop 
the proper attitudes, and sensitivities for 
teaching English. "Sometimes we write 
on these experiences we had. We do it 
right after the event or, on occasion, si- 

"Through the improvisations," Prof- 
essor Townsend explained, "we search out 
every day roles. After all the fundamental 
parts of English, writing and reading, are 
in large measure a going- out of one's 
self and assuming other roles." 

ETI consists of three classes of ten 
people. "We don't have a definite class 
schedule," Townsend added. "We meet 
from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and this is the most 
intense educational experiences any of us 
has ever had." 

Future projects within ETI are uncer- 
tain because most of the work is planned 
day by day. "We may write a play in 
which the school committee will figure." 
But Townsend is convinced that a follow- 
up program in the fall will be necessary 
"to insure this isn't just a brilliant flash." 
The actual application of what these tea- 
chers have learned will depend upon each 
teacher. ETI's purpose is to indicate 
some useful guidelines. 

College Presidents Urge No Amnesty for Student Lawbreakers 

NEW YORK(AP) - Eight college 
presidents who surveyed campus 
rebellions of the last academic 
year have advocated that there be 
no amnesty for student law- 
breakers and no negotiations under 

"Violent and disruptive ac- 
tions," their report read, "strike 
at the very heart of constructive 
dissent, academic freedom, and 
due process in the accomplishment 
of reform, all of which are the 
earmarks of a free university, and 
cannot be countenanced . . . 

"There should be no negotiations 
of demands under duress, i.e., 
when personnel are detained or 
buildings occupied. It must be 
made clear to all that there can 
be no amnesty for civil or crim- 
inal lawbreakers." 

The report said present laws are 
adequate in dealing with campus 
disruption, and it branded as un- 
fair "imposition of repressive leg- 
islation designed as campus 
control measures." 

One of the eight educators, Du- 
mont F. Kenny of York College in 
New York, said most of them felt 
it was a good policy to have po- 
lice visible at the edge of the cam- 
pus when violence threatened, to 
be called in if needed. 

In that connection, President Jo- 
seph P. McMurray of Queens Col- 
lege, New York, said presence of 
police on his campus during three 
weeks of disorders last spring 
"had a quieting effect." 

Queens and York colleges are 
divisions of the vast City Univer- 
sity of New York. 

Others who took part in a two- 
day survey conference on campus 
disruption were Presidents James 
A. Colston, Bronx Community Col- 
lege; Arthur O, Davidson, Wag- 
ner College, and the Rev. Greg- 

ory Nugent, Manhattan College, all 
in New York City; and Clifford 
Lord, Hofstra University, Hemp- 
stead, N.Y.; J. Osborn Fuller, 
Fairleigh Dickinson University, 
Rutherford, N.J.: and William G. 
Caples, Kenyon College, Gambler, 

The report was the outgrowth of 
a conference earlier this month 
at the John LaFarge Institute in 
New York, named for the late 
Jesuit editor. It was sponsored 
by a grant from the Knights of 
Columbus, a Roman Catholic fra- 
ternal organization. 

The report was released at a 
news conference, where Kenny said 
colleges and universities cannot 
continue to "take the battering in- 
flicted during the past academic 


The report said: "Accidental and 
irrational factors play a consider- 
able role in nearly aU campus 
disorders . . . Since trivial or 
imaginary issues may grow into 
major demonstrations and dis- 
orders, it is important that faculty 
and administrators respond to all 
situations quickly in order to dis- 
pel rumor, correct misinforma- 
tion, or provide time to take the 
steam out of irrational urges or 

"Since members of the academic 
community are subject to the same 
civil and criminal laws as every 
other citizen," the report read, 
"imposition of repressive legis- 
lation designed as campus control 
measures which tend to single out 
students for special restrictions 
are unfair and have no validity in 
principle or practice. 

"On the contrary, because many 
problems of the social order tend 
to show up earlier and be more 
visible in educational institutions, 
a helpful focus for legislative ef- 

forts would be attempts to deal di- 
rectly and positively with the so- 
cial roots of these problems rather 
than with their campus manifesta- 

"Finally, a year of campus dis- 
orders has taken its toll in the col- 
leges in instructional effective- 
ness, retention of able administra- 
tors, and public support. One of 
the casualties of this experience 

is open and frank communication 
which becomes more and more dif- 
ficult when everyone is playing 
roles . . . 

"When student governments are 
representative and legitimate, col- 
lege administrations should sup- 
port them against the challenges of 
'coalitions' and 'ad hoc commit- 
tees,' generally a tiny minority 
purporting to speak for all the 


"University faculties must face 
up to their responsibilities in deal- 
ing with unprofessional and irres- 
ponsible conduct of those few fa- 
culty members who have engaged 
in such practices as manipulating 
and irritating students for their 
own partisan and political goals."

Ginsburg Attracts and Captivates Thousands 

Over 2000 persons attended the two sessions of poetry reading by Allen Ginsberg last Wednesday eve- 
ning in Bowker Auditorium. The readings were originally scheduled in the Southwest Mail, however the 
occasional showers forced the move to Bowker. University officials estimate that 500 persons were 
turned away because of lack of room. 

The Burning City Theatre presented two short skits before Ginsberg's performance. One skit dem- 
onstrated the recent problems concerning People's Park in Berkeley California. 

On Tr lay night, Gwendolyn Brooks read poetry on the Southwest 
Mall, at* d by several hundred. She had earlier read during the first 
session ol Wednesday night's Ginsberg show. 

Hollander String Quartet 
Conclude University Stay 

"All good things must come to 
an end," stated Dick Walsh, cell- 
ist for the Hollander String Quar- 
tet. It was indeed the end and a 
rather glorious one at that. For 
the Hollander String Quartet com- 
pleted its summer residency at 
the University with their last con- 
cert held in Bowker Auditorium 
on Tuesday evening. The Quartet 
did a splended job in their per- 
formance of works including Scar- 
latti, Bliss, and Bach. However, 
the praises can not be extended 
only to the Quartet but must also 
be extended to those of our Music 
Faculty that also performed in the 
concert. Dorothy Ornest, soprano, 
Walter Chesnut, trumpet, and Mir- 
iam Whaples, harpsichord showed 
fine musicianship in Scarlatti's 
Contata "Su le sponde del Te- 
bro", a most interesting work for 
soprano { trumpet, harpsichord 
and strings. It might be of in- 
terest to mention that Mr. Ches- 
nut played a trumpet that perhaps 
appeared quite strange to the aud- 
ience because of its very small 

size. This work was composed 
with the trumpet part in a very 
high register, in the range of the 
small B flat piccolo trumpet, which 
is pitched one octave above the 
trumpet or cornet we are used to 

The second half of the program 
featured oboeist Charles Lehrer 
in a most interesting piece by Sir 
Arthur Bliss a major but rarely 
heard English Composer with quite 
an interesting use of rhythms and 
dissonances. Mr. Lehrer did to 
say the least, an outstanding job. 

This concert with members of 
the Music Faulty showed the aud- 
ience another aspect of the Quar- 
tet's musicianship and ability. It 
is one thing for a Quartet to play 
and to develop ensemble and quite 
another to be able to perform with 
a group of musicians after only 
one week of rehearsing. They 
all did a splendid job, particularly 
in view of the difficult pieces they 
choose to perform for that, their 
last concert on campus. 

tion's graduate schools have felt 
the impact of the elimination of 
graduate school deferments; how- 
ever, estimates last summer that 
male enrollments would drop by 
as much as 70 per cent were un- 

According to a study made by 
the Scientific Manpower Commis- 
sion, the draft policy announced in 
February, 1968 took its greatest 
toll among first-year graduate stu- 
dents. Second-year students were 
also significantly affected. The 
manpower commission, a private 
corporation, questioned 568 uni- 
versity departments of chemistry, 
physics, and psychology, and re- 
ceived responses from 356 of 
these representing some 10,185 
graduate students. 

The study shows that 15.9 per 
cent of the graduate males in 
chemistry in the fall of 1968 were 
either in the services as of last 
month or had already received 
induction notices. The figure for 
physics graduate students was 12.5 
per cent and for psychology 13.3 
per cent. 

Indications are that the im- 
pact of the changes in the draft 
will be felt more strongly this 
fall. According to the study, 
" One normally co-educational 
chemistry department ( which can 
not be identified) reported that its 
entire incoming class for 1969 
will be female." 

In March 1968, the commission, 
with the Council of Graduate Sch- 

ools of the United States, made a 
report that predicted a 70 per 
cent drop in male graduate school 
enrollments. While the figure 
proved overestimated, Mrs. Betty 
Vetter, executive director of the 
commission, said recently that 
"as far as I can see, the ulti- 
mate prediction is right. Only the 
time schedule was off." 

She accounted for the less-than- 
expected drop in enrollments by 
pointing to the "unbelievable slow- 
ness of local boards in reclassi- 
fications, the relatively low draft 
calls last summer, the large num- 
ber of reclassification appeals by 
draft registrants, and the fact that, 
for financial reasons, no military 
physical examinations were con- 
ducted during all of August 1968."

Army Enlistments Fall by 9000 

Army has missed its enlistment 
goal for the fiscal year just ended 
by 9,000 men, causing recruiters 
to admit they have never seen a 
year when the Army did so badly. 

Enlistments fell short of their 
objectives every month from Nov- 
ember to June. During the two 
previous years the Army had pas- 
sed its goals by from 8,000 to 
9,000 men. A total of 188,000 

men enlisted last year. 

Reasons for the decline voiced 
by Army recruiters include Pres- 
ident Nixon's campaign pledge to 
attempt to abolish the draft at the 
conclusion of the Vietnam war, 

and the much-opposed war itself.

It was . shock and it wasn't 
a saock, depending on what you 
believe. The No. 1 draft choice 
of the Boston Patriots got the axe 
Tuesday. And that with the first 
exhibition game scheduled for Sun-

Sellers isn't signed yet. 

Coach Clive Rush cut three men 
from the roster, and Dennis Byrd 
was one of them. Being the first 
draft choice for the patriots is 
equivalent to being the rookie of 
the year as a pitcher. It spells 
doom and anonymity. Remember 
Don Schwall? Case in point. 

It was more or less expected 
Rush would cut receivers John 
Erisman and Wayne "Speedy"

If no other team shows any in-

Pats to decide what will be done 
with him. It seems as if Rush 
is looking for some offensive help, 
and if that can be gained in a trade, 
so much the better for Boston. 
Rush' s explanation was cut and 
dry: Byrd wasn't performing up

Byrd was dumped into the middle 
of things. He was adequate at de- 

Summer Statesman 



But the decision was made on his 

combined performance last year 

and this year in the scrimmages." 

For last year's play, Byrd has 

an answer in explanation. He, by 

the way, was one who was shocked 

at the news. After the Ail-Star 

debacle last year, Byrd reported 

to the camp with an injured knee. 

He said, "They said I didn't want 

.to play, but I Just didn't want to 


fensive end and tackle last 
son. He was a rookie then. 

Byrd said, "I felt better about 
playing this year. My knee, which 
was operated on after my senior 
yeir at North Carolina State, felt 
better too. I really thought I was 
coming along okay." 

One of his teammates wasn't 
quite so surprised. "He was 
all right in a game, but he's one 

of the laziest players I've ever 
seen " 

Byrd said though his fate was- 
n't entirely unexpected. He ad- 
mitted he played poorly in last 
Saturday's scrimmage. "I'm not 
questioning the coach's judgment. 
He made some changes and I 
didn't figure into them." 

He went on to say, "It's tough 
being No. 1 and then having the 
bottom fall out." In describing 
the feeling, he said, "It caught 
me off balance. I'm disappointed 
and down. It's sort of an empty 
feeling. It's the first time any- 
thing like this has ever happened 
to me." 

Byrd came to the Patriots as a 

defensive tackle and was shifted 

to end. This year he started at 

end and was shifted to tackle. 

"I asked to play inside the first 

day in camp, but they said they 

wanted to look at me at end first. 

I knew I wasn't doing it there, 

though," he said. Byrd predicted 

a few more surprises before the 

season gets underway. 

The loss of Byrd leaves only 
veterans Jim Hunt and Houston 
Antwine and rookie Richard Lee 
at tackle. Former UMass star, 
Ed Toner, will be shifted into the 

tackle group. 

The Patriots also have another 
problem. Rookie halfback Carl 
Garret was due to report Sunday 
night after the All-star game. He 
reportedly lost his plane tickets 
and phoned collect to tell the coach 
he'd be late. Nothing like getting 
off to a bad start with a new boss. 

The Patriots have cut the morn- 
ing drill from the schedule and wiU 
have full scale afternoon workouts 
at the Stadium in preparation for 
the pre -season exhibition game 
with the Cincinnati Bengals in 
Bowling Green, Sunday. They'U 
be in Boston the following week- 
end for a game against the At- 
lantic Dolphins. All paid admis- 
sions are going to get tee shirts 
patting the Pats on the back. Won- 
der what they look like? 

Missing from Sunday's game will 
be defensive back Billy Johnson, 
lost for two weeks with a twisted 
knee. Flanker Aaron Marsh will 
probably miss the game due to a 
strained knee. 

Pats Patter - According to Mark 
Silverman and John Stavros (two 
devotees) the Pats looked snappy 
in practice Tuesday. "Out of 
sight" was the description. 


Warren Pierce McGuirk - No Piano 

By JIM MORSE (from the Herald) 
AMHERST - Did you ever meet a man for 
the first time and try to guess his profession? 
Without knowing anything about his background, 
chances are you'd be wrong about Warren Pierce 
McGuirk. Immaculately dressed - even with a 
hat and tie in 90 degrees temperature - and 
with a quiet, cultured voice, you could easily 
imagine him to be the pianist with the Boston 
Symphony Orchestra. 

And he probably could have been if he'd set 
his mind to it when he was a boy in Dorchester. 
There are few things the Warren Pierce Mc- 
Guirks of this world are unable to accomplish. 
But this W. P. McGuirk wasn't interested in the 
piano. Moving one on his back, perhaps, but 
not playing it. 

Dorchester's Warren Pierce McGuirk (I don't 
know why, but I'm fascinated by the name) was in- 
terested in football. After a schoolboy career at 
[Dorchester High, he moved on 
Ito Boston College where he 
(was captain and right tackle 
lof the unbeaten 1928 Eastern 
I Championship team. 

Incidentally, that was the 
*\ last Boston College team to de- 
Ifeat Navy until the feat was 
repeated last fall, when BC 
helped to present the Patriots 
with Bill Elias, the nice guy 
Navy coach at the time who 

is now an assistant to the Pats' Clive Rush. I 
don't know how many, if any, other favors the 
Patriots owe Boston College, but that's certain- 
ly a major one. 

AS CAPTAIN of that undefeated 1928 team, 
Warren was riding high in Boston that year. So 
much so that James MJrhael Curley tapped him 
to be one of his escorts (oh well, bodyguard is 
the proper nnme for it) during his mayoralty cam- 
paign that toll. Perhaps that's wnen McGuirk 
learned to polish his gift of gab. Although he's 


certainly a much quieter speaker than James 
The following year Warren entered the ranks 

of professional football with Jimmy Conzelman's 
Providence Steamrollers in the old National League. 
"I'll never forget that season," says McGuirk. 
"It would be impossible for me to forget it. At 
one point we played three games in four days. 
And remember, in those days you played the full 
60 minutes -- both on offense and defense. 

"ON SUNDAY we played Green Bay in Provi- 
dence. We played the Philadelphia Yellow Jack- 
ets in Philly on Tuesday, took the train home 
after the game, and met the Chicago Cardinals 
in Providence's first night game in history on 
Wednesday. After that game I went to a Turkish 
bath, had a rub down and all the works, and 
slept right there for 36 hours." When he finished 
his playing career, Warren Pierce McGuirk be- 
came a coach, including a nine -year stint at 
Maiden High School. 

I met Warren the other day for lunch at the 
Lord Jeffery Inn in the company of Gerry Moore, 
whose title with the Patriots this year is adminis- 
trative assistant to the head coach, Clive Rush. 
Gerry, whom Warren properly referred to in his 
mellow tones as "Gerald" throughout the lunch, 
and McGuirk have been friends for 40 years. They 
kid each other as only good friends are able to do. 
"ASK HIM about Tom O'Connor," Gerry - 
Gerald told me. 

W. P. McGuirk put down his glass of tomato 
juice, studied Mr. Moore intently for several sec- 
onds, and then sadly smiled in my direction. 
"Tom O'Connor," he said, "was the coach at 
Medford High when I was the coach at Maiden. 
During my nine years there, he beat me six 
times. He's one of the luckiest men I've ever 

McGuirk came to the University of Massachu- 
setts 20 years ago this fall as director of ath- 
letics. He still holds that title in addition to 

being dean of physical education. Warren looks 
and acts like a dean, but he prefers to center his 
conversation on football. When he first met 
Clive Rush, he immediately asked: "When are 
the young men going to start knocking heads to- 

"THE DEAN," by the way, is sold on Rush. "He 
may have a rough year or two," he said, "but Mr. 
Rush knows football, and furthermore, he's a gen- 
tleman. If I had any money to spare, I'd bet on 
him. He's a winner in every respect." 

After 20 years on the campus here, Warren 
Pierce McGuirk should know something about stu- 
dents. "You hear and read about the very small 
minority who make themselves conspicuous by 
their looks and speech," he said, "but the majority 
are the same as they always were." 

I've heard that some collegians have become 
disenchanted with football and other forms of 
athletics in favor of group poetry readings and pot 

"DON'T YOU BELIEVE IT," said McGuirk. 
"At least, it's not true here. Oh, of course, there 
are always some who aren't interested in football. 
That's to be expected. But last fall, when we had 
a poor season - - two victories against eight losses - 
68 per cent of our student population attended the 

"And our intramural athletic program is most 
successful. Our students want to participate, rather 
than merely be spectators. That's what is im- 
portant to students today - participation and in- 
volvement. It's strange, but in the early 1950's 
students were criticized for not becoming in- 
volved, and today they are criticized for doing 
just that. 

"WE HAVE A GOOD SYSTEM here at the 
university. Our administrators meet with the stu- 
dents once a week at the student union to hear any 
gripe j. I've found that most of the gripes Involve 
a lack of understanding. Once the situation is dis- 
cussed and ironed out, overyone goes away happy. 
Well, most of the time."

UMass Students Demand Low Cost Housing From Town 


The housing sore which has been 
festering in Amherst finally was 
broken open Tuesday as students 
from the University, all members 
of the United Christian Founda- 
tion, presented a petition listing 
eight demands to Mr. Allen Tor- 
rey, the Amherst Town Manager. 
The petition charged the town 
with unfair business practices and 
negligence concerning matters of 
discrimination against students. A 
group of 20 people presented the 
petition which was signed by ap- 
proximately 750 persons. 

The eight points listed in the pe- 
tition called for the formation of 
a rent control board, the removal 
of certain members of the Amherst 
Housing Authority, cancellation of 
2400 building permits for housing 
to be rented at "exhorbitant pri- 
ces" and the construction of low 
rent housing by the University ad- 
ministration. It also called for 
the replacement of real estate 
taxes with a direct tax on busin- 
esses, an investigation of accused 
"businessmans bias", equal labor 
opportunities for all races, stu- 
dent representation in town gov- 
ernment, and the creation of a con- 
sumer committee, to oversee fair 
merchandising practices. 

The presentation which took 
place on the second floor of the 
Town Hall was brief and to the

a member of the staff asked them 
to please be seated. The reply to 
the request was, "We'd rather

Torrey entered the room saying, 
"I'd like to have you sit down 
so we can discuss the matter." 
Immediately upon refusal of this

Protestors Interrupt Church Services

The House yesterday passed a

The students quoted several pas- 
sages from the Bible concerning 
human life. 

'«-- That theie should be Jus-

with basic human needs flowing

"-- That religion, Christianity

around the fulfilling of these ba- 
sic human rights: food, clothing, 
shelter, the comfort and love of 
other humans. 

"We address the church gath- 
ered in Amherst, Mass., a small 
New England community where 
these basic needs are not being 
met," the students continued.

Approximately 80 worshippers 
were present in North Congrega-

Town, University Fail 
To Meet Students' Needs 

The struggle is long overdo. 

The current protest over student living conditions in Amherst 
should have begun two years ago when the need was probably half 
as great as it is now. 

University students are being exploited, have been exploited, and 
all probability will continue to be exploited for a long time to 

come. , . 

Off-campus housing conditions in the Amherst area leave much 
to be desired. Prices are exhorbitant while facilities are poor. 

Several years ago the University decided that it would not get 
into the business of building low-cost apartment complexes for mar- 
ried or graduate students, even though it knew the current complex 
for married students, Lincoln Apartments, was far less than ade- 
quate to meet the rising demand. «„,„«, 

The job was left to private developers (i.e., Colonial Village, 
Puffton Village). Private contractors were able to build these un- 
its at minimum costs, at bare minimum safety standards, and make 

maximum profits. 

(When the demand for these apartments became great, as it has 
In the past few years, the landlords were able to institute such un- 
fair gimmicks as holding a month's rent in escrow, damage depos- 
its and leases which when read between the small lines, held the 
tenant responsible for any damage whatsoever to the apartment, 
even if caused by an unknown third party (i.e., mother nature). 

The new lease for Colonial Village residents is the best exam- 
ple of this grossly unjust practice. 

Other older, traditional apartments in the Amherst area are in 
truly decrepit condition. In several instances the Board of Health 
has instructed landlords to make major repairs in order to pre- 
vent health hazards. Often the landlords, more concerned with their 
own pocketbook than with the student's welfare, make only "patch- 
work" repairs and hope the Board of Health won't inspect their 
premises again for another year. 

The townsfolk, who are making their profits from the students, 
have not met up to their responsibility. For some time now $30,- 
000 000 has been available to the town for the construction of low 
cost housing. This money is not going to be available forever. The 
town and the University have conducted study upon study, all say 
ing that there will be a need for low-cost housing in the future. Well 
the future is now. It's the responsibility of the citizens of Amherst 
to put the pressure on the local housing authority to acquire this 
money and start construction of the low and moderate income hous- 


Also the University has failed to adequately foresee the needs o 
Its student population of 1969-70. It is the University's responsibil 
ity to meet the needs of its students. The problem is not only off 
campus, but on-campus as well.. Hundreds of students will shai 
triples in the fall. 

If UMass cannot meet the needs of its 15,000 students today, we 
wonder if it will be able to meet the needs of the 20,000 students in 

five years? 

A committee will report to President John W. Lederle in the fall 
concerning the problem. The chairman of the committee, Arthur 
Gentile, has already called the problem "critical." However, there 
is evidence that the committee will only make recommendations^ 
about the University's role in providing off-campus housing for 
married students only. To do only this would be a grave injustice 
to the entire graduate and undergraduate student body. The Uni 
versity must do its share, working with the town government, to 
orovide low-income housing for as many students as desire it.

Are Bay State Students Short-Changed? 

* -j ii _i I a Mi.ilt.l rannoctc nocnito hie nhd 


BOSTON (AP) - Since education 
is like patriotism, and it's hard 
to get anyone responsible to crit- 
icize it, the average citizen finds 
it hard to evaluate the claims of 
some educators that the public col- 
lege student is getting short- 

The annual budget crunch in- 
volving the state education complex 
and the legislators holding the 
pursestrings is great for rhetoric, 
but leaves many persons confused. 
Are the state colleges and uni- 
versities getting enough money? 
Are they getting too right way? 
These are questions which receive 
more candid answers off the record 
than on. 

Says one informed spokesman 
for the academic lobby: "Mass- 
achusetts has rested on its laurels 
for years. We are so far behind 
some other states. You can't com- 
pare us with smaller neighboring 
states. Look at New York, Cal- 
ifornia, Michigan, Indiana. The 
legislators are in one hell of a 
bind. They say, "This is how 
big the pie is, now everybody fight 
among themselves'. The problem 
is more money is needed --the 
pie has to be made bigger. The 
old game set institution against 
institution. Now the state boards 
of education are saying, 'we need 
more money'." 

He continued: "We have a com- 
mitment to grow that some other 
state departments don't have. We 
add 1,500 students every year to 
the University of Massachusetts 
at Amherst -- that's more than an 
entire Amherst College every 
single year. We're not complain- 
ing about faculty salaries. (Pro- 
fessors will get the pay raise voted 
for other state employees.) But 
the support funds have not been 
coming -- for technicians and sup- 
plies and secretaries. And pro- 
grams like the UMass law school, 
the continuing education plan, and 

education plan, and educational tel- 
evision are all scrapped for lack 
of funds." 

That is one side. Several leg- 
islators privately condemn the st- 
ate's educational complex for being 
"a bunch of greedy, salfserving 
administrators who want to expand 
their empire." These are law- 
makers who vote for education 
funds, but bitterly resent the crit- 
icism from the academic complex 
that much more is deserved. They 
come to us from Mental Health 
and Welfare and the other social 
service departments and want 
more money. They point to the col- 
leges and say, 'took at them,' 
and we have to decide whether to 
give more to retarded kids or to 
the poor people or to the college 

Last week, Asst. Education 
Commissioner George J. Collins 
resigned his $20,000 per year 
job, saying the state is "no long- 
er being serious about education," 
that he had to work with "in- 
adequate" staff, budget and coop- 
eration, and criticized the legis- 
lature for slashing school building 

requests. Despite his charges, 
he prepared in his three years 
on the job more than 1100 million 
in new school construction voted 
by the legislature. 

Still working at his job as Pro- 
vost, and chief academic officer, 
of the state university is Oswald 
Tippo, who threatened earlier this 
year to resign over budget cuts, 
but who was talked out of it by 
fellow professors. 

Tippo' s threat, announced in the 
press, drew a blunt reply from 
Sen. James F. Burke, (D) Brock- 
ton, chairman of the Senate Ways 
and Means Committee: 

"No S.O.B. is going to hold a 
gun to the head of the legislature 
to get us to give him more money." 

The public education growing 
population shows spokesmen say 
the state's growing population 
shows their demands are legiti- 
mate. They say the private col- 
leges and universities are not ex- 
panding, or only accepting token 
increases. They say the bulk of the 
working class students now aspir- 
ing to college have nowhere to go 
but to public schools.

his office was responsible for 
audits on all state agencies, com- 
missions and authorities. After 
audits were taken direct reports 
and recommendations are made to

WASHINGTON - Rushing to aid 
200,000 students strapped for 
money to enter college this Fall, 
the Senate approved, 92-1, the Stu- 
dent Federal Loan program, dried 
up by soaring interest rates. 

The only negative vote cast was 
by Republican leader Everett M. 

However, there was no indica- 
tion the House would agree on the 
bill before Congress starts a 
three - week recess late Wednes- 
day, meaning final action was 
highly doubtful before students 
have to get their financial ar- 
rangements set for the start of the 
new term. 

The legislation would provide 
incentive fees of up to 3 per cent 
to private lenders, mostly banks, 

which now have a 7 per cent in- 
terest ceiling. 

With the prime interest rate now 
8.5 per cent, bankers have no in- 
terest in making 7 per cent in- 
terest loans even when they are 
government-guaranteed. With the 
incentive fees, the rate could go 
up to 10 percent - with the pro- 
vision that if interest rates go 
down, so will the government's 

asked the welfare officer said that 
he believed the person had friends 
in for the afternoon. 

Other inequities cited concerned 
the purchase of furniture. As the 
system called for no pre -auditing 
there were no checks on what 
merchandise was purchased, 
where it was purchased, or if it 
was even delivered. In short. 
State Officials are unable to find 
out if they actually received what 
was paid for. 

He also stated that the system 
was behind payments to many of 
their clients, a situation hope - 
fully to be remedied by the use 
of computers. 

When asked about a solution to 
the problem Buczko explained that 
a successful program will only 
be possible when, "uniformity of 
welfare laws and programs in the 
United States are initiated." Then 
only could the welfare system hope 
to approach a system that func- 
tions properly. 

The State Auditor, making his 
fourth regional visit of the year, 
met with Joseph Cheskins from 
Longmeadow, and President Led- 
erle to discuss the progress of 
the audit. The trip concerned it- 
self mainly with creating better 
public relations while "trying to 
encourage people in our organiza- 
tion to improve themselves by tak- 
ing courses." and, "meeting the 
people in our own system." 

Stating that the state office 
makes from 35 to 40 audits per 
day, Buczko also mentioned the 
summer intern program which 
pays local students to help the 
state offices with the audits. This 
Buczko said, "attempts to get 
students into the field, and also 
helps our recruiting program when 
the students graduate."

Wrecked Reporters Enthused 

Patriots Add Two More Rooters to Their Legions 

_ ^..r,. r.,r _.. ... „.„* . t .._ ,.«„,»> Tho inQinnaHnn is there, eood to miss. Imaeine. right in tl 


The Patriots have developed a 
new cult of rooters on the other 
side of the Statesman city room. 
Dubbed the "wrecked reporters", 
they huddle around secretary Car- 
olyn Hertz's desk each day between 
work breaks to discuss the club 

Mark Silverman explains that the 
group formed "when we figured 
that, since we were members of a 
communications media, we might 
as well find out what was going 
on around campus." 

"We walked down to the stadium 
to see if Spring Day was still 
going on a couple of weeks ago," 
he continued, "and we saw these 
guys in white and red jerseys run- 
ning around. We figured that they 
couldn't be the Redmen because 
they were catching the football 
when it was thrown to them, so 
we asked some guy named Rush 
and he said they were the Pa- 

Later that night, Silverman goes 
on to explain, "We were wander- 
ing around Checquers when we saw 
a lot of really big guys stumble 
out of the men's room half zonked 
and figured that they had to be 
Patriots, and we decided to be 

The wrecked reporters even go 
out to see the team practice on oc- 
casion because, according to Sil- 
verman, "If you are a real fan 
then you want to know what's 
going on and you can't believe any- 
thing you read in the papers to- 

Silverman and News Editor John 
Stavros have made their predic- 
tions for the Pats this year. They 

row." The insinuation is there, 
and we'll let it pass. 

The chance to comment on the 
Patriots going to play at BC is too 

Summer Statesman 

s ports 


good to miss. Imagine, right in 
the home of the screaming Eag- 
les (or turkeys, depending on the 
UMass "football fortunes). That 
constitutes an affront to all of us 
loyal Redman fans who let them 
romp in our stadium this sum- 
mer, a stadium which each one 
of us pays for. The way UMass 
pigskin fortunes have been going 
lately against the Eagles, the Pats 
are probably jinxed for the sea- 
son and will blame everything on 

A man called in to a Boston 
radio program to complain about 

the lack of pre- season publicity 
afforded to the Pats as compared 
to the Red Sox. The caller could 
not recall where the Pats were 
having their training camp. And 
that sums up the problem. Am- 
herst seems to be an anthema 
to Boston sports writers. Next 
to nothing is paid to any of the 
UMass athletic teams. About the 
only time UMass ever gets men- 
tioned in the Boston papers is 
when they're in Boston or playing 
a team from the city. It seems 
as justice was done when Rush 
busted a certain Boston writer. 

-Based on the victory over the 
Bengals last week, the Pats are 
no worse than the second worse 
team in the AFL. 

-The only problem with the Pats 
defense this year will be that oth- 
er teams will have a tendency to 
score points against it. 

-Mike Taliaferro will have a bet- 
ter year than Tom Yucik had in 

-Fans at Boston College will 
not hang out "Bring back Mike" 
signs this year. 

Speaking of Boston College Al- 
umni Field, the Pats home terri- 
tory this year, Silverman enthuses. 
"One of the great things about 
last week's exhibition is that it 
got the team used to playing in 
front of 16,000 fans." 

Silverman, an astute judge of 
football talent, but a poor speller, 
enthuses on Billy Murphy. "He's 
unbelievably fast and has all the 
tools necessary to become one of 

the greatest pro receivers of all 
time." Murphy was cut earlier 
this week because of "lack of

say, the distaff side has some-

He, the festival promoters, and 
many of the entertainers had fear-

Continuously through the three-

operator had cautioned the nearly 
100,000 young music fans to "keep 
it cool. " He warned that the Wood-

August 15-17 might be jeopardized 
if trouble broke out like that which 
struck the Denver Pops Festival 
earlier this summer and several 
small pop festivals in California. 
"We'll never be able to have

A good deal of the apprehension 
surrounded the appearance of the 
explosive Janis Joplin on Sunday 
evening. Only a week earlier, 
Miss Joplin had caused two near- 
riots with her electrifying appear- 
ances at Columbia, Maryland. She 
was forced to stop one of her shows 
there several times to caution the 
crowd the police in the back room 
who were "just waiting to come 
out and bust some heads." She 
seemed pleased with the crowd's 
response to her, but genuinely con- 
cerned someone could be hurt.

Joplin wound the enormous crowd 
around her finger with her nar-

there was no mobbing the stage

That's the way the entire fes- 
tival went. Part of the reason 
is that there were never any po- 
lice in sight at all, except for 
long-haired, sandaled security 
ushers. But more of the reason 
was that the East Coast crowd who 
paid their $15 (or who sneaked in)

occured Saturday afternoon when 
several hundred fans streamed into

motors stopped the show saying 
that the music could not continue 
until the people returned to the 
stands or the track area. (The 
track area originally had been off 
limits, too, but the promoters 
gave the people that as a com- 
promise to keep them out of the 
infield.) In short time the fans

New Program for Training

The University of Massachusetts 
School of Education is developing 
a completely new program for the 
training of elementary school tea- 

' The project is called METEP, 
or Model Elementary Teacher 
Program, and has begun its sec- 
ond phase through award of a 
$152,000 grant from the U.S. Of- 
fice of Education Bureau of Re- 
search. The initial phase began 
a year ago when the UMass School 
of Education was selected to work 
on the program along with eight 
other institutions in the country. 

The project is directed by Dr. 
James M. Cooper, director of the 
UMass Center for Teacher Edu- 
cation. "Of all the speculation 
about the schools of tomorrow, 
everyone seems to agree on one 
point - we are in for some radi- 
cal changes," Dr. Cooper said. 
"The elementary teacher of the 
future faces many new and little 
understood challenges. There cur- 
rently is a pressing need to pre- 
pare teachers to fill new and dif- 
ferent roles in a rapidly increas- 
ing number of elementary schools 
throughout the nation that are 
adopting innovative educational 
programs," he explained. 

The current phase of the pro- 
ject is a feasibility study, to run 

through June, 1970, and to involve 
an interdisciplinary team from the 
School of Education, School of Bus- 
iness Administration and depart- 
ment of industrial engineering. 
The study is designed to test the 
technical, economic, adminis- 
trative and pedagogical feasibility 
of the model, its acceptability to 
students, teachers and administra- 
tors and its adaptability to future 

The results of the feasibility stu- 
dy will determine whether the 
model can really help elementary 
school teachers meet the challeng- 
es they will face in the near future. 
If the model is proven workable, 
the next step in its development 
will be to begin limited implemen- 

Dr. Cooper came to the Uni- 
versity in 1968 as an assistant 
professor to head the newly crea- 
ted Center for Teacher Education 
at the School of Education. 

A pioneer in the field of micro- 
teaching, Dr. Cooper was director 
of the Stanford University micro- 
teaching clinic before coming to 
UMass. He received his A.B. 
degree from Stanford in 1961, an 
A.M. in education and an A.M. in 
history, both from Stanford, in 1962 
and 1966, and his Ph. D. from 
that institution in 1967. 

Welcomes Foreign Students 

Over Labor Day weekend the U- 
niversity expects the arrival of 150 
new foreign students who will ar- 
rive on campus after a long and 
tiring trip from their homelands. 
The Amherst Town Committee for 
Foreign Students will once again 
operate a Reception Center in 
Prince House to help students with 
temporary housing. The Center 
will be open from 1:00-6:00 p.m., 
August 30 - September 2. There 
is a need for students willing to 
guide the new arrivals and help 
them with their luggage. Those 
interested in helping should call 
Mrs. W. Bramlage at 549-3633 

for further information. 

There will be a two-day orien- 
tation program for the new stu- 
dents on Sept. 3 - 4 based at the 
Student Union. This will include 
an orientation to the registration 
procedures and information on 
American culture and shopping 
information. The program will 
culminate with an International Tea 
in the Colonial Lounge at the Stu- 
dent Union on Sept. 4 at 4:00 
p.m. All members of the univer- 
sity and town communities are 
welcome, and particularly mem- 
bers of the foreign student com- 


Two black University of Massa- 
chusetts students have charged the 
Amherst town police with ignoring 
their requests for protection. Wil- 
liam Hasson, a graduate student, 
and Stanley Kinard, an undergrad- 
uate, appeared Tuesday before the 
town's board of selectmen. 

Both students cited several in- 
stances this summer where they 
claim black students have been the 
subject of racial incidents which 
police have ignored. 

In one example, a group of Up- 
ward Bound students and counsel- 
ors were returning to their dorms 
following an incident where a group 
of white men reportedly attempted 
to run down some black students. 
A police car approached the UMass 
students, and three officers began 
chasing the black students. A 

white counselor, Edward Terrill, 
ran with one of the cops and tried 
to talk to him. When the policeman 
refused, TerriU asked him for his 
name and badge number. The of- 
ficer refused and in turn arrested 
Terrill charging him with assault- 
ing an officer and disturbing the 

Terrill was brought to the Am- 
herst jail and booked. Later that 
night, a group of Upward Bound 
students went to the jail and bail- 
ed Terrill out. 

The Black students also claim 
that Amherst Police came onto the 
campus when they had no author- 
ity to do so. An agreement had 
been made between the university 
administration and Upward Bound 
that town police would not be 
called onto the campus, to deal with 

a situation involving Upward Bound 
personnel, until the matter had 
been discussed. Apparently on the 
night in question, Amherst police 
came onto the campus, without the 
prior knowledge of any administra- 

In another incident, a white youth 
pointed a knife towards a black 
student outside the Tower restaur- 
ant, according to Kinard. The 
black youth immediately reported 
the incident to a police officer 
near f ':>e Tower, who ignored him, 
got into an Amherst police cruiser 
and drove away. 

Finally a car driven bv black 
women students was chased bv a 
car driven by white youths and the 
young women were barraged with 
insults. Black male students ar- 
rived on the scene and were "in- 

QU?r flaBnarijUBftta 




vited to settle the matter" in the 
parking lot of the Tower restaur- 

The black students arrived to 
find the whites waiting armed with 
chains and tire jacks. The blacks, 
according to Kinard, appealled to 
police in a passing car who just 
ignored their request once again. 

Hasson told selectment that the 
two were appearing before the 
board because they had not re- 
ceived any satisfaction from Town 
Manager Allen L. Torrey, nor from 
the police department at the uni- 

He added that the black people 
here have not appealed to Po- 
Uce Chief Francis E. Hart be- 
cause they felt that was Torrey's 

The UMass graduate student said 
that a relatively small number of 
blacks are in Amherst now, but 
that a much larger group will be 
here in September when the Uni- 
versity opens. 

"We would like to be able to 
communicate to these people (the 
iRComing blacks) but unless we 
get some protection from police 
there will be no way (of reach- 
ing the blacks unfamiliar with the 

He said he has seen parallel 
incidents of this sort in other 

communities where strife devel- 
oped into virtually all out war be- 
tween blacks and whites. The ap- 
peal to selectmen, he said, was 
to avert this sort of disaster in 
this town. 

Both students said that they had 
lost all confidence In the police 
department. "At first," said one, 
"we didn't beUeve that the police 
didn't care. Now it appears that 
we will have to take care of our- 

Hasson added that police here 
should be given training in hand- 
ling black-white problems and con- 
frontations. University officials 
have also failed to produce re- 
sults in providing adequate pro- 
tection for blacks, he noted. 

Town Manager Torrey said he 
was disappointed that the blacks 
felt It necessary to appeal to the 
Board of Selectmen because he 
said, "I thought we were making 
some progress in this area." 

But Hasson said the progress 
made was not enough and that 
racial slurs are continually flung 
at himself and others. "Black 
students are tired of this -- I 
don't think they are going to take 
it much longer," he said.

dent of the UMass Afro -Am So-

Town Answers Demands 
Movement in Limbo 

Steve Moore, student at the University, addresses students at the gathering held on the Am- 
herst Common last Friday. The crowd varying from 50 to 200 people listened to the Town Man- 
ager reply to a list of demands presented to him earlier in the week. 

At 3:00 p.m. on Friday after- 
noon, Rev. Ronald Hardy stepped 
up to the microphone set up on 
the Amherst Common, and began 
to address the crowd which had 
gathered in the area of the P. A. 

He began by commenting briefly 
about the purpose of the meeting, 
(an open forum and protest again- 
st alleged student minority dis- 
crimination, through various town 
laws, and in various town com- 
mittees) and said, "the only ac- 
ceptable solution is action." He 
then turned the meeting over to 
Town Manager Allen Torrey. 

Torrey, the man who had re- 
ceived the groups demands on Tu- 
esday, in the form of a petition, 
had been asked by the group to 
provide action on Friday and not 
words. He began by adjusting a 
sign that had fallen on the ground 
by the microphone. The sign 
read, "We want justice now." 

Senate Plans for Future 

The Summer Senate, anxious to 
alleviate the problems of this sum- 
mer, considered two plans for es- 
tablishing a Summer Government 
Committee, Tuesday night. 

The first plan was passed to set 
up a Summer Arts Program Com- 
mittee made up of five students and 
five administration or faculty 
members. The committee will 
work throughout the year in set- 
ting up activities, such as the Sum- 
mer Program Committee now 

The Arts Program will bring 
more student voice into the type 
of activities provided for the sum- 
mer. It was noted that this years 
Program Committee appropriated 
$26,000 of student funds (about 
$5. per student) for the Summer 

The second plan, which was post- 
poned until next Tuesday, will ask 
the regular Student Senate to set 
up a Summer Government commit- 
tee to provide temporary govern- 
ment during the Summer until the 
Summer Senate can be elected. The 
proposal was sent to committee to 
limit the powers which this tem- 
porary committee will have. 

Finally, the Senate Service Com- 
mittee was instructed to draw up 
a model house Constitution for 

next summers dorms to use until 
they can provide one of their own. 
This arose from the problems en- 
countered with this summers open 
house policy.

His action pleased several peo- 
ple in the crowd that was slowly 
growing in number. 

Torrey then commenced to read 
In full the contents of a seven 
page reply. His first line read, 
"In reply to the demands pre- 
sented to me Tuesday, August 12, 
I respectfully submit the follow- 
ing replies. The following is a 
listing summarizing both the de- 
mands and the town's replies. 

Demand: Formation of a Rent 
Control Board to eliminate cor- 
ruption of a sellers market. Re- 
sponse: " this time the Town 
of Amherst does not possess the 
authority to create a Rent Con- 
trol Board." Suggestion was then 
made to study a Rent Advisory 
Board which is now functioning 
In Brookline, Mass., but has no 
legal authority. 

Demand: Removal of certain 
members of the Amherst Hous- 
ing Authority who refuse to use 
available funds for low rent hous- 
ing subsidy and housing construc- 
tion. Response: "The terms of 
two of the members expire 1l 
1970. Through the accepted dem- 
ocratic process, candidates may 
be offered to the voters who rep- 
resent the views of any organ- 
ized group...I believe that the Au- 
thority members are now very a- 
ware mat there are several other 
public housing areas in which they 
could move."

Woodstock People 


Whenever 300,000 people get together in front of a T.V. camera 
on the CBS Evening News it's usually for a riot or a war or an 
earthquake. The people invariably yell at each other or at the 
cameramen or at the cops who, decked out in full battle array, 
are supposed to be instilling a feeling of security. The people 
are generally not too happy, but Woodstock was an exception. 

The people were nice. They didn't kill each other, all they did 
was act like people, and that's something that doesn't always happen 

There were reports of violence. Three persons did die, and 
a lot more became ill, some seriously. There was a lot of what 
the police call "drug abuse," but no crimes were committed. 
After all, people don't commit crimes when they're being nice to 
each other, and everyone was being nice at Woodstock. 

"It was filthy and grubby but it was the best weekend I've 
ever had because the people were so great." That's the way Nancy 
Bass, a swing-shift Freshman, describes Woodstock, and she speaks 
for a lot of people. 

"It was just beautiful," she continues. Whenever anyone was 
eating they always offered food to the people around them, and if 
anyone was sick or felt bad people were always around to try to 
help out." 

But all of this being nice puzzled John Lawrence, CBS news 
correspondent, reporting from Woodstock. 

"The conditions," he said, "are disgusting. The sanitation 
facilities are totally insufficient, there is a shortage of food, and 
the drug traffic is quite heavy." 

His prediction, based on years of observing riots, muggings 
and wars was, "a major, violent incident could erupt at any time." 

This prediction was backed up by Joseph Benti in New York who 
reported, "people are living with no laws for a weekend." 

But nothing violent happened. The people just continued being 
nice to each other. 

"In fact," Nancy Bass reminisces, "when things were the worst, 
when it rained and everyone was grubby, the people were the nicest." 

This was an odd weekend. 300,000 people got together and sat 
out in the rain in a huge field and got wet and tired and stoned and 
did what they wanted to do - listen to music and have a good time. 

All of this may prove something. It may prove that people can 
live with people under difficult conditions without killing each 
other if they give themselves a chance. It was a good weekend.

Demand: Investigate obvious 
businessman's bias. Response: 
"The alleged "obvious business- 
man's bias" in the recently pre- 
pared Master Plan does not ex- 
ist. It can only be inferred from 
a misreading of the Plan..." 

Demand: Immediate provision 
for labor, Puerto Rican, Black, 
Asian, and student representation 
in Town government. Response: 
"It is difficult to measure par- 
ticipation by race, for, in fact, 
relatively few non-whites live in 
Amherst. While there are few, 
if any, Puerto Ricans of Asians 
active in town government, Blacks 
have been involved in community 
affairs in Amherst for many years. 

Demand: Creation of an omni- 
budsman (sic) committee with the 
power to redress exploitation of 
consumers. Response: "An om- 
budsman is a good idea for relief 
where no other recourse is appar- 
ent. In Amherst, since the last 
Town Meeting, there has been a 
Citizens Review Commission (lit- 
tle Kerner Commission) which... 
is "to deter mine how Amherst may 
fully extend democratic govern- 
ment and equal opportunities to 
all inhabitants." It is presently 
preparing its findings and recom- 
mendations, and I believe it would 
welcome information of alleged 
grievances and injustice." 

After reading the replies to the 
crowd Torrey summed up the of- 
ficial statement by saying, "Am- 
herst, although small in size 
suffers from the same ills that 
troubles all of urban America. 
You as the future leaders are 
entitled to be concerned. Your 
solutions and your actions must, 
however, be carried out within the 
framework of government. The 
government of this Town will al- 
ways be receptive to your constr- 
uctive ideas and suggestions." 

The speech, which lasted about 
one half hour, often induced verbal 
reaction from the crowd. When 
the demands were read the crowd 
in the front rows cheered. Nega- 
tive responses were illicited when

the Town's replies were read . 
Torrey, who handled himself ex- 
tremely well, only became slight- 
ly unhinged when some people in 
the audience began to openly shout 
doubts about some of the propos- 

At the end of Torrey's presen- 
tation Steve Moore, a student at 
the University, started comment- 
ing on the Town's responses and 
the Town itself. 

Moore stated that Amherst, "is 
a colony, a town with no life, the 
people are dead." He went on to 
ask that if the town did not have 
power to act, "Who did have the 
power?" Continuing in his crit- 
icism, Moore called the Town a 
"white ghetto" concluding that it 
was, "a mad dog, although you 
love it, you got to kill it some- 

The next to speak was Bart 
Kaplan, a graduate student at the 
University. Kaplan, who had been 
taking notes during Torrey's ad- 
dress, began a series of replies 
concerning the Town's answers. 
Each reply negated what Torrey 
had said, and asserted that the 
town either did have the legal 
power or that excuses and hedg- 
ing seemed to be the towns only 
answer. These accusations met 
no response from the Town Man- 

After Kaplan's discussion the 
meeting was again turned over to 
Steve Moore. Moore asked the 
crowd to pull in around him and 
thirty of the approximate 200 com- 
plied. He then led the group in 
song and in a chant of "All power 
to the people." The crowd began 
to thin out. Moore, while lead- 
ing the rally, turned to Torrey 
and said, "We don't hate you, we 
just don't like what you're doing." 

Before the end of the open air 
meeting Torrey stepped up to the 
microphone and stated he was very 
glad this had taken place. He 
expressed opinion that this was 
good for the town and much had 
been learned. He then said, 
"T.G.I.F." (Thank God it's Fri- 
day) and with several friendly 
chuckles from the crowd the meet- 
ing was closed as popular music 
was played over the P. A. system.

WASHINGTON (CPS) - Incidents 
and charges over the Army's in- 
volvement with nerve gas continue 
to make news after two military 
bases which tested the poisonous 
gas have suspended their tests. 

Experiments have been halted at 
both the Edgewood Arsenal in 
Maryland and Fort McClellan in 
Alabama pending safety studies. 
The Edgewood installation had been 
testing offensive uses of the gas, 
while the McClellan base had been 
testing defensive uses, the Army 


Although the testing has been 
suspended, an incident this month 
at the U.S. base in Okinawa has 
increased anti-nerve gas furor. 
The Wall Street Journal of July 
18 broke the story, reporting that 
the U.S. "has apparently deployed 
operational weapons armed with 
lethal chemical agents as part of 
its deterrent force overseas." 

The discovery came when it was 

learned that an accidental release 
of deadly VX nerve gas recently 
hospitalized at least 25 persons. 
The victims apparently breathed 
the gas when a container of it or 
weapon containing it broke open. 

At the same time news of the 
Okinawa incident broke, U.S. Rep. 
Richard McCarthy (D-NY) was 
charging that the Pentagon planned 
to start production of a new type 
of nerve gas at Newport, Ind. 
The Defense Department denied it 
was starting such production at 
Newport, but McCarthy claimed 
the denial simply meant the sight 
had been changed or the official 
name of the substance would be 
something other than nerve gas. 

With McCarthy's charges and the 
revelation of the Okinawa incident, 
the Pentagon lights have burned 
late into the evenings as military 
experts try to figure out what 
to tell the public. 

Nerve Gas Issue Explodes

conflict, distinguished contribu- 
tions in a number of fields have 
earned for Dr. Speier a reputa- 
tion as a modern Renaissance man. 
He has done landmark work in 
political sociology and is almost 
as well-known for his contribu- 
tions in the sociology of knowledge 
and the sociology of literature. 

In addition to his leading role 
in social science research, Dr.

Namath Humbles Giants-, Pats Lose to Atlanta 

QJf> 0btB*att)uettte 

There was mourning in the city 
room - at least on the other side 
of the city room. The wrecked re- 
porters were discussing the New 
York Giants and the Jets. The 
Patriots managed to get a few 
words, but just a few. 

Mostly the mourning was for the 
Giants. There were those of us 
who were adamantly against Joe 
Namath. We remember Y.A. Tit- 
tle cradling his helmet as he wat- 
ched his team from the sidelines. 
The good old days, as the say- 
ing goes. So Joe Namath powered 
the Jets to a 37-14 win over the 
Giants. But he's not Y.A. Tittle. 
Even if he were bald, he won't 

Namath said before the game, 
"I don't think too many people 
are going to take the Giants ser- 
iously any more." So he was 
right, as far as most profession- 
al sportswriters are concerned. 
But, Boy, it's going to be fun the 
day Namath shouts off his mouth 
before a game and then loses. 
Loses big, for our money. 

As for the Patriots, they lost 
also. So what else is new? As 
one writer so aptly put it: Any 
resemblance between the Boston 
Patriots and a polished profes- 
sional football team was strict- 
ly a coincidence. 

What was the score? The At- 
lanta Falcons, 34, the Pats, 14. 

It was their fifth straight loss 
to a National Football League club 
leaving the Pats as the only Am- 
erican Football League team with- 
out a pre- season win over the 

Action started promisingly with 
Boston running out to a 6-0 lead 
in the first quarter on the stren- 
gth of 23 and 50-yard field goals 
by Gino Cappalletti. 

"Our first offensive and defen- 
sive units were good in the first 

Atlanta tallied again on its next 
series of plays with a 25-yard 
pass from Johnson to Jim 'Big 
Meat' Mitchell (6-2, 235) keying 
the drive, which started at the

tion to flanker Paul Williams bro- 
ught the ball to the three and

quarter," said Patriots' coach 
Clive Rush. "After that our ex- 
periments proved costly." 

The second quarter proved dis- 
astrous, with one interception 
changing the tempo of the game. 

Mike Taliaferro, who was at 
quarterback for the entire first 
half, uncorked a pass over the 
middle to reserve full back Bill 
Bailey. He got a hand on the 
ball and was belted. The pigskin 
then deflected into the waiting 
arms of defensive safety John 
Mallory and he streaked 35 yards 
from his own 41-yard line. 

Eight plays later, quarterback 
Randy Johnson sneaked over from 
one yard out against the Pat's se- 
cond defensive unit. Atlanta had 
been denied three times from the 
three prior to the score. With 
9:13 remaining in the quarter, 
Paul Wiedl converted to give the 
Falcons a 7-6 lead. 

Jim 'CannonbalT Butler plunged 
over from a yard away two plays 

However, the Falcons were not 
content with a two-touchdown out- 
burst and added a 33-yard field 
goal by Wiedl with 50 seconds left 
in the second period. Linebacker 
Grady Allen set this up by knock- 
ing the ball loose from Boston's 
fullback Jim Nance and middle 
linebacker Timmy Nobis pounced 
on the bobble at the Pats' 13 
yard line. A personal foul stal- 
led the Falcons and Wiedl made it 
17-6 at halftime. 

Tom Sherman was ineffectual at 
quarterback for the Pats with in- 
sufficient pass blocking protection 
and brilliant Atlanta defensive end, 
Claude Humphrey, omnipresent in 
the backfield. 

However, the fourth period bro- 
ught the partisan Boston crowd 
back to life temporarily. Rookie 
George Muse picked off an At-

lanta pass at the Falcons' 26 from 
his middle linebacker post. 

After three plays lost three 
yards, CappeUetti booted a 36- 
yard field goal, his third of the 
afternoon to make it 17-9 Atlanta 
with 13:50 to play. 

Atlanta came back, though, with 
an assist from the referee. Start- 
ing at their own 24, the Falcons 
covered 76 yards in 12 plays with 
a 13- yard Wiedl field goal climax- 
ing the drive. Paul Gipson, high- 
ly praised rookie from Houston, 
was the big man in the attack as 
he ripped off a 37-yard run around 
left end. He used every blocker, 
including the referee who slowed a 
Boston linebacker, in racing to 
the Boston 20. 

Kim Hammond, who directed the 
Pats in the final quarter, hit rook- 
ie Garrett for a 20- yard pass com- 
pletion on the Pats' next offensive 
series, but a holding penalty neg- 
ated this short-lived thrust. 

And Butler burst loose over right 
tackle for his 7 2- yard score just 
one minute later to give the Fal- 

NEW YORK - The Negro has 
made virtuaUy no progress in the 
administrative end of baseball, 
charges Atlanta Brave slugger 
Hank Aaron in an article in the 
current issue of SPORT Magaz- 

"The Negro hasn't made any 
progress on the field. There are 
no Negro managers," says Aaron. 
"We haven't made any progress 
in the front office and we haven't 
made any progress in the com- 
missioner's office. 

"Even with Monte Irvin in there, 
I still think its tokenism. I think 
we have a lot of Negroes capable 
of handling front- office jobs. We 
dont have Negro secretaries in 
some of the big-league offices, and 
I think it's time the major lea- 

gues, and baseball in general, just 
took hold of themselves and start- 
ed hiring some of these capable 

On the subject of what baseball 
owes the player and what the play- 
er owes the game, Aaron says in 
the SPORT article: "I don't owe 
baseball anything, but baseball 
owes me everything because I 
have played the game just as hard 
as anyone else has ever played it. 
I feel that once I retire, one of 
the owners should say, 'Henry, I 
want to give you a job,' not as a 
super- scout, because I don't want 
to be a super-scout. I want a job 
in the front office. 

"You can't keep your mouth 
closed and hope everything'll be 
all right," continues the Braves' 

cons a 27-9 lead with 3:15 re- 

The many fans, who filed out at 
this juncture, didn't get their mon- 
ey's worth. The action was fast 
and rather unexpected in the last 
minute of play. 

Hammond completed two strai- 
ght legitimate passes to bring Bos- 
ton from its own 3 2 to Atlanta's 
31. Then he lofted a bomb which 
was tipped by wide receiver Tom 
Richardson into the arms of At- 
lanta's Jim Weatherford, who in 
turn gave it to Boston's tight end 
Jim Whalen at the seven. 

Nance, who showed no signs of 
any maneuverability problem, po- 
wered over from the one on a 
fourth down play. The score was 
27-16 with 35 seconds to go and 
Boston tried an onside kick. 

The ball took one hop to rookie 
tackle Malcolm Snider at the Pa- 
triots' 49 and, while the Pats 
went looking for the ball, Snider 
dashed straight ahead for the fin- 
al touchdown. 

Pats to Move to Curry? 

The entire world is not a cold shoulder. Somebody does love the 

While they stiU have troubles finding an adequate stadium and a 
balanced football team, at least one friendly hand has been offered. 
The Patriots have a place to practice this year if they want it. 

"I would assume they're coming back here," Curry College president 
Joseph Hafer said yesterday. "They still have a lot of equipment here, 
and we are going under the assumption they're coming back." 

The Pats still haven't announced they are returning to Curry, but 
one official said yesterday only a few details have to be cleared before 
an announcement will be made. 

The facilities at Curry, though not as posh as some teams' privately- 
owned buildings and fields, are adequate. They consist of a large-sized 
locker room, a smaller film room that used to serve as the school 
chapel, and few small offices. 

The fields - though not on a par with the greens at Augusta National 
or even the grass near the Boston Common duck pond - are consider- 
ably better than those the Pats have used at Phillips Andover Academy 
and East Boston Stadium. They are not as good as the fields the Pats 
presently use at the University of Massachusetts, their pre- season 

The Pats will stay at UMass until the end of this month, then will 
be forced jout by the beginning of the school's own football program. 
Probably, almost definitely, they will wind up at Curry. 

The Pats had yesterday off, following Sunday's 31-17 exhibition loss 
to the Atlanta Falcons at Boston College. The players also will have 
today off, while the coaches will reassemble at UMass to review films 
and discuss personnel changes. 

Among the problems undoubtedly to be discussed will be the over- 
abundance of offensive linemen and the scarcity of linebackers. At the 
five offensive line spots, the Pats presently have 12 bodies, while line- 
backer, the numerically wealthiest of spots at the beginning of camp, 
is down to six men, two of them rookies. 

The two day vacation for the players was the benefit of a scheduling 
quirk. The Pats' next game is not until Monday against the Detroit 
Lions at Montreal's Jarry Park. 

As with everything in life, the players will probably have to pay for 
their rest at the other end of the scale, the following game being on 
Sunday, Aug. 31, at Jacksonville, Fla. against the Denver Broncos. 

Broaca Named Head Soccer

back, and as soon as you get out 
of baseball, they'll say, 'See you 
later.' Nobody's said, 'Hank, once 

you get out of baseball, you'll 
have a job with us.' I'm sure 
people like Stan Musial and Ted 
Williams were assured of jobs. 
After spending so much time in 
the league, what else can a ball- 
player do?" 

As for becoming the first Ne- 
gro manager in baseball, Aaron 
indicates an interest, but says: 
"They keep telling me to wait 
till the right time, but I see my- 
self out of baseball and dead, and 
my kids will be waiting. I don't 
know what is the right time," 
concludes Aaron in the SPORT 

Broaca has been a member of 
the University athletic coaching 
staff for three years with fresh-

as freshman basketball compris-

A native of Hyannis, Broaca is 
a graduate of Boston Latin Sch-

In the wake of recent charges 
of racism and police bias the Town 
of Amherst, under the leadership 
of Town Manager Allen Torrey, 
is taking steps to ready itself for 
the fall semester. 

.Action to avoid the bleak future 
recently racially oriented clashes 
have outlined, will take the form of 
sensitivity training for Amherst 
Police. As stated by the Amherst 
Record this week, "Other possi- 
bilities include a hot line tele- 
phone to Mills House, headquart- 
ers of UM Afro- American Society, 
and community- wide efforts to un- 
cover Amherst racial attitudes." 
On Aug. 20 a group of about 30 
black and white students met with 
the town Citizens Review Com- 
mission, a group that has been 
meeting since March to ready a 
report to the selectmen concern- 
ing the situation cf minority groups 
in Amherst. 

The students message to the re- 
view commission was that trouble 
would come when 500 blacks were 
in town, if inflamatory incidents 
occurred and police did not act 
to provide blacks with the protect- 
ion of the law. 

At the meeting incidents of pub- 
lic harassment to near gang war- 
fare and charges of attempted 
murder had been cited. 

In September 1968 members of 
the Sunday Breakfast group met 

with leaders of both Amherst and 
UM police. The group suggested 
that special "sensitivity training" 
would be helpful to officers in 
doing their duty, at the time it was 
noted that police needed to see in- 
cidents from the point of view of 
students, or of blacks. One year 
later action appears immenent. 

On campus various forms of 
"sensitivity training" are in use, 
partly as a response to the "21 
demands" of black students of 
November 1968. Freshman orien- 
tation for example has included 
"socio-drama," presentations in 
which blacks and whites play roles 
before an audience which then 
discusses the incident. 

"These students are coming 
here from the city," said one Am- 
herst man. "They can't necess- 
arily be expected to "take it easy" 
if violent language isused. They 
have lived in the ghetto and they 
will react like kids who have had 
bad experiences with cops." 

Some hesitation within Town 
Hall is felt about the extent to 
which efforts are publicized. Black 
spokesmen emphasize the need to 
let black students know that offi- 
cials are aware of the problem 
posed by local prejudice and the 
need to provide impartial police 
protection. From the official side 
come objections based on a "Why 
stir things up." 

UMass Faculty Wins 
Salary Raise Fight 

A section of the state em - 
ployees' pay raise bill that would 
have eliminated merit raises for 
more than a thousand University 
of Mass. faculty members, has 
been deleted from the final ver- 
sion passed by the state legisla- 

An amendment offered by Sen- 
ate President Maurice Donahue of 
Holyoke cut out the restriction 
that had been placed on the pay 
raise bill i n the House during 
debate in July. The bill was 
passed during the legislature's 
rush to prorogue this weekend. 
As it now stands. UM faculty 
members and teachers at other 
state colleges and universities will 
receive, as in past years, the 

merit raises that accompany pro- 
motions or increased responsibil- 

The original amendment had 
been made by Rep. Edward Coury 
of New Bedford and said that any- 
one who received a merit raise 
after Dec. 28, 1968 was ineligi- 
ble for another, and could only 
receive the 12 per cent or $20 
raise authorized in the standards 
for all state employees. 

Donahue's amendment survived 
a floor fight Saturday in the House 
as Rep. Olver of Amherst and 
Education Committee Chairman 
George Rogers ofNewBedord pre- 
vailed against Coury' s arguments 
against the merit raises, 141-4. 

Summer Senate Ends Session 

On Tuesday, the Summer Student 
Senate met for the last time this 
session. In preparation for next 
year, the Senate passed two bills: 
one was a "model constitution" 
for residence halls to use until 
they prepare and adopt their own, 
if any; the other was a recom- 
mendation to the regular Student 
Senate that a temporary govern- 
ment be appointed to regulate Sum- 
mer Senate elections ( to be held 
in the second full week of the first 
Summer Session), and to act on 
matters of business and policy for 
the summer students until the 
elections are held. The intent of 
both bills is to ensure that a 
functional system of student gov- 
ernment is set up as soon as 
possible; unlike this past summer, 
then, because of red tape, the 
summer government did not get 
off the ground until just before the 
end of the first session. 

"This summer has been more 
productive than most people ex- 
pected", Dave Stevens, Summer 
Senate President said. "Students 
became actively involved in study- 
ing the present summer program 
and its budget, and ensured by 
doing so that students will have a 
greater voice in how their money 
is spent in the future. The Senate 
also succeeded in bringing the 
Light- show /blues band production 
to Southwest, giving the campus 
its first real happening." 

"After studying the mistakes 
made this year, and cutting up at 
least some of the bureaucratic 
red tape that has entwined this 
campus, " he continued, "it is 
hoped that next year's Senate can 
work more closely with both stu- 
dents and administrators to ac- 
complish the goals of the summer 
student body."

It won't look this quiet for a long time to come. Soathwest has been unusually quiet this summer 
but with more than 5000 students living there in the fall, the noise and headaches will return. Fresh- 
men arrive on campus Friday, September 5, and other undergraduates arrive Monday, September 8. 

Legislature Ok's Student Trustee 

Massachusetts is believed to be 
the first state in the nation to pro- 
vide for elected students to serve 
on the boards of trustees of state 
colleges and universities. 

NASA Aide to 
Teach in UM 
Geology Dept. 

UMass officials have confirmed 
the appointment as visiting as- 
sociate professor of geology, atop 
ranked NASA official who resigned 
his national post because of in- 
ternal difficulties within the space 

Dr. Donald U. Wise, formerly 
chief scientist and deputy director 
of the Office of Lunar Explora- 
tion, National Aeronautics and 
Space Administration, will teach 
some introductory classes in geo- 
logy and advanced classes in struc- 
tural and lunar geology, University 
officials said. 

Wise was given the responsibil- 
ity of the moon samples brought 
back to earth by Astronauts Neil 
Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Mich- 
ael Collins. 

Wise received his bachelor's 
degree from Franklin and Marshall 
his master's degree from Califor- 
nia Instutute of Technology and 
his doctorate in geology from 

A native of Reading, Pa., Wise 
was on a leave of absence from 
Franklin and Marshall where he 
was an assiciate professor of geo- 

University officials did not dis- 
close the salary Wise would be 
paid, but acknowledged that it was 
$7,000 a year less than his salary 
with the Apollo program. 

Wise, university officials re- 
ported, is anxious to return to his 
teaching career. 

However, reports from within 
NASA in the past few days in- 
dicate that a feud over control of 
future Apollo and other space ex- 
ploration has been brewing for 
some time among the scientists 
and engineers who are responsible 
for making key decisions. 

Gov. Sargent is expected to sign 
the bill into law this week. The 
legislation was proposed by Sar- 
gent in June. 

Early in the legislative year 
Rep. George Rogers (D-New Bed- 
ford), House chairman of the Ed- 
ucation Committee, filed legisla- 
tion simply to have students on 
the boards of trustees. 

After the rioting at Harvard, 
Gov. Sargent had his own bill 
drafted. He announced the plan 
at the Holy Cross commencement. 

At least four other institutions 
have just put students on their 
boards of trustees, but they were 
appointed to fill regular vacancies 
and the student seats are not 
guaranteed by statute. The four 
include the University of Maine, 
Princeton, City University of New 
York , and Coker College, a 
girls' school in South Carolina. 

Sargent's plan, which passed 
nearly intact, calls for a student 
elected by schoolmates to serve 
on the boards of trustees of the 
University of Massachusetts and 
Lowell Technological Institute and 
Southeastern Massachusetts Uni- 
versity. Each of the state colleges 
and community college student 
bodies will elect a representative. 

There is one board of trustees 
for state colleges and another for 
community colleges. The students 
elected will form commissions and 
their chairmen wiU serve as vot- 
ing members of these two boards. 

Final passage of this bill came 
as the Legislature was ending 
and sparked unexpected debate. In 
earlier stages the bill drew little 

Some legislators argued that 
student senates provide adequate 
outlet for student expression. Oth- 
ers argued that the governor al- 
ready has power to appoint stu- 
dents to these boards. Rep. Ro- 
bert A. Belmonte(R-Framingham) 
said a normal appointment period 
is for seven years. The new leg- 
islation calls for students to serve 
only one year. 

Rep. Charles W. Mann (R-Han- 
son) said he thought the governor's 
action was aimed at "appeasing" 

When he offered the legislation, 
Sargent said he wanted the students 
to pick their own representatives, 
thus making action for their own 
campus interests. 

On most of the boards the stu- 
dent member will be sitting with 
about 20 other trustees, members 
of the public appointed by the gov- 

Since the legislation was pro- 
posed, the governor has had de- 
mands from faculty, alumnae, and 
administrative groups, demanding 
that they too have an elected re- 
presentative on the boards of trus- 
tees. As a result, Sargent is es- 
tablishing the task force on educa- 
tion, to decide how all these groups 
can be best represented. 

Amherst College Raises Tuition 

Amherst College has announced 
that it will raise its fee for room, 
board and tuition for 1970-71 to 
$3,600. The charge for the com- 
ing academic year will be $3 460. 

The cost of individual ized ed- 
ucation was the reason given for 
the tuition hike. Amherst has been 
known for its independent study 
projects and tutorial- like classes. 

In a letter to parents of Am- 
herst students, President Calvin 

H. Plimpton explained, "We real- 
ize that this decision follows an 
increment to be introduced this 
fall and we are extremely reluct- 
ant to raise our charges again. 
It is the Trustees' conviction, how- 
ever, that students should pay a 
fair share of the cost of their 
education. Yet even with this in- 
crease, income from student s 
meet only half the cost of opera- 
ting the college." 





Police Discrimination 

The University police are now 
completing their own summer ses- 
sion and course grades will be no 
different than they havi ever been. 
This session for security has 
been marked by inconsistancy, dis- 
crimination, and charges of racism 
prevelent in past years. All three 
catagories are well within an aver- 
age semesters work. 

However, these charges present 
nothing new to students familiar actions of the University po- 
lice. It is of no importance to 
security, when blacks clearly 
charge and site examples of police 
harassment on campus. The an- 
swer simply comes from head- 
quarters that there is no racism 
on the force. 

It makes no difference if the 
large percentage of tickets for 
traffic and parking violations are 
given to students. Police will 
reply that students simply commit 
more infractions. Yet, a glance 
at the south patio of the Student 
Uiuon, an illegal area for ANY 
motor traffic, and then look at 
police records, will show students 
paying the $10 fine for driving 
there, while the staff members 
are given unregistered warnings. 
Consider the inconsistancy of 
tagging on Haggis Mall, a no- 
parking at any time zone, which 
suddenly had the law enforced one 

day, to the dismay of the persons 
who had been parking there all 
summer. Since that incident, no 

Of course, ignorance is no ex- 
cuse in the eyes of the law, but 
inconsistency is by no means the 
manner in which laws are en- 
forced. The merits of a parking 
ban in the mall are a separate 
issue. The issue here is laws 
must be enforced, consistantly and 
without bias. 

The problem has existed for 

years, and editorials have end- 
lessly scored police only to meet 
taken response. Security changes 
must be the key for time will 
not allow verbal solution. There 
will be more students at the Uni- 
versity, meaning higher probabil- 
ity and increased exposure to po- 
tentially dangerous incidents. For 
the creation of a competant and 
efficient security force to handle 
the problems of the University, 
modernization is a must. 

Recommendations in the Powell 
Report on improving University 
security have been made, some 
will not be readily accepted. How- 
ever, the time for recommenda- 
tion instead of theraputic action 
ended long ago. 




A Student Confrontation at Laguna Beach 

Autumn on Campus 

High level officials of the Nixon 
administration are reported to be 
sanguine over the possibility of 
relative clam on the campuses this 
fall. This optimistic note is wel- 
come but there are portents that 
point in an opposite direction. 

A recent survey by Fortune 
Magazine made this disquieting 
finding: "The ideas that have kept 
colleges in turmoil this year are 
spreading beyond radical students 
to the rest of American youth, in- 
cluding those not in college. More- 
over, young Americans are modi- 
fying to a startling degree- -and 
even abandoning- -some of the be- 
liefs that have been traditionally 
at the heart of the American ethic'.' 

Already the Student Mobilization 
Committee to End the War In Viet- 
nam has pencilled in major de- 
monstrations. On Sept. 27 the first 
will be staged in Chicago where 
eight antiwar protestors are sche- 
duled to go on trial. On Oct. 15, 
again in Chicago, the group has 

scheduled a "moratorium" 

on nor- 
for one 

mal university activities 

The most ambitions of three is 

planned for Friday, Nov. 14. This 
would be a nationwide student 
strike, followed the next day by 
a march on Washington "to bring 
the message home to the Presi- 
dent." The goal is participation 
in the strike by a million students, 
college and high school. 

But there is a growing feeling 
among administration officials, 
based on informal talks on cam- 
pus unrest with several hundred 
college leaders through the sum- 
mer, that the campus militants 
have lost support among the mod- 
erates, the largest single cam- 
pus bloc who has seemingly been 
unable to mount an effective coun- 
ter movement. 

It would be reassuring to most 
Americans to believe the militants 
are on a toboggan slide; it would 
be doubly reassuring to know col- 
lege administrators are urgently 
seeking the changes that all but 
a handful of students feel are le- 
gitimately needed. But such re- 
assurance is not presently avail- 
able. Only events of the fall can 
provide it. 

LAGUNA BEACH, Calif. - The 
beach here is trafficked by all 
manner of the young - students, 
youngsters, with their parents, 
hippies and dropouts. The long- 
haired boys*. mostly sit up and 
smoke cigarettes, blinking at the 
Sun and not saying much. The 
swimmers are livelier. They leap 
into the surf, come back, shake 
water from their tanned bodies, 
laugh and fool around. 

Some students bring heavy read- 
ing and thoughts. One, an attract- 
ive girl with sparkling brown eyes, 
wanted to talk. Weren't the news- 
men covering President Nixon's 
Western White House staying at 
Laguna? Did they know what he 
was like and what was really going 

The newsmen said that Nixon 
was bright, not particularly in- 
spirational, but was a good listener 
and wanted to end the war. The 
girl said she was interested to 
hear that because whe didn't know 
much about the President and she 
had hated Lyndon Johnson. She 
told how she had gone to an East- 
ern girl's college, studied in Swit- 
zerland two years, and graduated 
from the University of California 
at Berkeley a year ago. 

Her father was a professional 
man, generous to his children. She 
was 22 and "bumming around, hav- 
ing my freedom." She had disdain 
for Eastern kids "because they 
are all hung up with problems." 
She was proud not to belong to 
the "West Coast lie back and do 
nothing" crowd. When she was at 
Berkeley she had liked to "riot" 
because of the release it save her. 
Reagan is a curse word. But she 
didn't look angry when she cut

"I don't think Nixon can do any- 
thing, anyway. It's too late. This 
country is headed for a goddam 
revolution. The blacks should 
burn it down. I can't see any 
hope. Even if the revolutionaries 
win, there will be just anouther 

The newsman asked if many 
young people think that way. She 
showed her white, even, well- 
cared- for teeth when she replied: 
"Not many. Only the ones with 
good heads. They're smart enough 
to know it's all over and they in- 
fluence the other kids. Say, what's 
Julie Nixon like? She looks all 
right. Does she know anything?" 

"She's full of zip," he said. 
"Tricia is like a pretty, wind-up 
doll. Julie's the lively one." The 
girl asked where Julie went to 
college and, hearing it was Smith, 
said, "She must have a good head, 
then." In half- a- minute, though, 
she was back on the track. 

"I'm against this goddam coun- 
try," she said, still without pas- 
sion. "I'm against the establish- 
ment and capitalism," He wanted 
to know why. "Because they keep 
this goddam war going just to 
protect the system," she said. 
"They need the system to keep all 
their cars and stereos and swim- 
ming pools." "Who is 'they'?" 
he insisted. "The political- mili- 
tary -industrial complex," she 
said. "They're keeping the poor 
and blacks down." 

"Some of the best anti-poverty 
work is done by business," the 
man argued. "Look how they've 
hired the hard-core unemployed. 
This country isn't perfect, but it's 
trying. Hell, did you know there 
are Negro airline pilots, heart 
surgeons, space scientists. There 

is lots going on you don't know 
about - out there in the real world." 
It's still too late," she said. "This 
country has kept the blacks in 
slavery for 350 years." 

"When you were at all those 
fancy schools," he said irritably, 
"didn't you learn that slavery goes 
back centuries and that Africans 
were trading slaves long before the 
whites got there? What happened 
was that the British, French, Dutch 
Spanish, Portuguese, even the 
Scandinavians bought slaves from 
black traders. Slavery went to 
the Caribbean and came to the 
American colonies late. When 
those maritime nations lost their 
colonies, they lost the problem." 

"That 350-year stuff is a cliche" 
he continued, "The Negro who lives 
today can't help what happened back 
then and neither can I. It's now 
that counts, every white person 
in this country can do something 
in his own life to help Negroes. 
If you really mean it, why don't 
you work in an anti-poverty cen- 
ter or join VISTA or the Peace 

That wasn't her style, she said 
thoughtfully. Besides, it is "too 
late." She liked "bumming a- 
round" and would ski in Sun Valley 
next Winter. "A cop-out," the 
newsman said righteously. "The 
only way to' help people is to do 
it. You only complain and won't 
take responsibility. Masochism is

"We can't talk anymore. Your 
views are too different. You're

WASHINGTON- Radical students 
who have been infiltrating plants 
this summer find the work hard 
and the workers hard, too. But 
they expect that, and they are far 
from giving up. 

"I work over a 37 5- degree boil- 
ing glue pot from 8 a.m. to 4p.m." 
said one student. "I'm really 
fagged out by the end of the day. 
But I have six hours of political 
meetings to go to each night and 
also on weekends. 

"I can see why other workers, 
especially with families, might 
find it hard to become involved 
in radical political work even if 
they wanted to. . ." 

The goal of the Students for a 
Democratic Society "work-in" is 
to begin building the base for a 
worker- student revolutionary alli- 
ance. There are an estimated 
1000 students involved, but num- 
bers are being kept secret by SDS

lows: Amherst- -9 a.m., Aug. 26,

What have they found? 

"Everyone in my place was 
primarily interested in talking a- 
bout the Red Sox or politics," 
says a student working in a Boston 
Meat-cutting establishment, "and 
I don't mean ABM when I say 
politics. I mean how the boss. . . 
screws the workers. 

Adds a Wellesley girl: "There 
is a real problem with the work- 
ers who just go home to their 
families and aren't concerned with 
politics." She has solved the 
problem one way. She's dating 
workers and talking politics then. 

"It's really a problem when a 
worker comes up to you and makes 
some anti-Communist remark, 
rare as that is," Wellesley said. 
"What do you say? You can't ex- 
plain all Marxist philosophy in a 
few seconds. This is the type of 
problem we discuss in our sec- 

The sections are discussion 
groups, in which 10 or 20 students 
meet at night to discuss every- 
thing from the revolutionary role 
of pro football to how to combat 
racism among workers. 

The sections are secret, and no 
student is supposed to tell another 
where he is working. The radical 
press was not permitted to write 
about the project for several weeks 
because of the expectation of what 
one Boston SDS leader described 
as "government and ruling class 
suppression moving into high 
gear. . ." 

Estimates vary on the size of 
the work-in. Most in SDS claim 
somewhere between 1000 and 2000, 
but no one knows for sure be- 
cause of the silence of the auton- 
omous regions in the project. Vir- 
tually everyone who asked to par- 
ticipate in the project has gotten 
a job, according to SDS officials. 

Housing Crisis in Hampshire County 

There is a housing crisis in 
Hampshire County: buying a house 
or renting a decent 4-5 room apt. 
has become a privilege of the 
upper income class. This is the 
finding of a report by Mrs. Mar- 
ion Miller, Vice Chairman of the 
Hampshire County Citizens Hous- 
ing Committee. The report en- 
titled "Facts About Housing in 
Hampshire County" is an inter- 
pretation of various surveys tak- 
en since 1960 by the Census Bu- 
reau, by the Lower Pioneer Valley 
Regional Planning Commission, 
and by local groups such as the 
League of Women Voters, MICAH, 
TCD (Total Community Develop- 
ment) and student researchers. 

A housing crisis is simply this: 
too few people have enough money 
to obtain the little decent housing 
available. Put another way, too 
many people are living in poor 
housing at too high a cost, and 
no relief is in sight. Whatever 
new housing is built in the near 
future will be grossly insufficient 
to meet the county's needs and so 
expensive that it will be out of 
reach for the great majority of 

the county's citizens. 

The housing crisis in Hamp- 
shire County, unlike a famine, 
would not make itself evident in 
a dramatically catastrophic way. 
There are no families that have to 
sleep in the streets and fields of 
Hampshire County. Everyone has 
some sort of roof over his head. 
Until quite recently (in Amherst), 
there have been no demonstrations 
about housing by unhappy tenants. 
Superficially then, there doesn't 
seem to be a very compelling rea- 
son for being concerned about 
housing. But just below super- 
ficial appearances, Mrs. Millers' 
report documents the fact that 
more and more families are be- 
ing forced to be satisfied with 
less and less satisfactory hous- 
ing. The steady sqeeze of higher 
costs of living and rentals, to- 
gether with the overcrowding that 
takes place when insufficient hous- 
ing units are built to accommodate 
an expanding population, creates 
a situation which at its mildest 
is irritating and frustrating but 
at its worst can lead to the kind 
of ugly outbursts that are tear-

The housing crisis in Hampshire 
County can be illustrated by sim- 
ple arithmetic and simple statis- 

EXAMPLE A: You buy a mod- 
est $17,400 house in Northampton. 
(Note: In the county most new 
low- cost 5 room ranch houses 
without garages are closer to 
$20,000). Your down payment is 
approximately 20% (or $3400). You 
obtain a $14,000, 20-yr. mortgage 
at 7-1/2% interest. Your monthly 
payment, not including utilities and 
maintenance, but including princi- 
pal, interest, taxes, and insurance 
is approx. $180. Assuming that it's 
reasonable to spend 25% of yo»r 
income on housing, you will re- 
quire an income jf approx. $200 
per week or $10,000 per year. 
If you have this income you are 
fortunate in being in the upper in- 
come class of Hampshire Co. 25% 
of the county's families have in- 
comes of more than $10,000/yr. 
The remaining 75% of the County's 
families have to be satisfied with 
staying where they are. 

EXAMPLE B: You want to rent 
an apartment for $80 per month 
(Note: you will have much diffi- 
culty finding one for this price. 
If you do, it will probably be sub- 
standard or limited to couples 
without children). Assuming that 
its reasonable to spend 25% of 
your income on housing, you will 
require an income of $80/wk. or 
$4000/year. If you don't have 
this income, you are unfortunate 
in being in the low income class 
of Hampshire County. 20% of the 
county's families have incomes of 
less than $4000/yr. You are one 
of thousands in Hampshire County 
using a large portion of your mea- 
ger income to pay for renting a 
dilapitated apartment. 

The housing crisis in Hampshire 
County, or for that matter, in the 
nation, is a paradox. After all, 
a house is made of things, mater- 
ial goods, which also make up cars, 
clothes, appliances. Our system 
of Manufacturing, Promotion, 
Sales, Distribution efficiently glut 
our stores with many many things 
and Credit, "easy" credit, induces 
us to buy them. But not housing.

enormous mountains of things at

Male to trim bushes, weed, rake

prices that the great mass of 
people can pay, stops short at 
housing. It is easy to see why. 
A house is burdened with problems 
of inefficient construction, prob- 
lems of taxes, limitations of suit- 
able property available, local or- 
dinances , long term financing, 
and legal issues, that appliances 
are not burdened with. Somehow 
we will have to apply our wealth, 
our talent for organization, and 
our best technology to solving the 
housing problem. 

What is being done to solve the 
housing problem? Private enter- 
prise could solve the problem if 
costs of construction and interest 
rates were to come down. This 
is not going to happen while the 
current inflationary trend per- 
sists. Building costs are in- 
creasing at the rate of 1% per 
month. (At this rate building costs 
will double in 10 years). Mort- 
gage interest is already going 
beyond 7-1/2%. (At this rate, 
the total interest cost is nearly 
equal to twice the principal amount 
of the mortgage). Apparently, re- 
lief in the housing crisis (which 
is not localized in Hampshire 
County but is prevalent through- 
out the nation) will come in form 
of: 1. Federal and State sub- 

sidies. 2. A revolution in hous- 
ing technology in which low cost 
housing will be mass produced by 
assembly- line techniques. 3. A 
legislative clearing away of ad- 
ministrative obstacles to change, 
obstacles such as bureaucratic 
red tape, antagonistic and obso- 
lete local ordnances, antagonistic 
trade union rules. 

The Hampshire County Citizen's 
Housing Committee has been or- 
ganized to help cope with the 
county's housing crisis. It is one 
of many local groups sponsoring 
the construction and rehabilitation 
of low and moderate income hous- 
ing. Its purpose is to make the 
citizens and elected officials of 
the towns in the county more aware 
of our housing crisis. It is also 
exploring the possibility of form- 
ing a non-profit, self-supporting 
Housing and Development Corp., 
which will have the professional 
expertise and the funds to help 
the county obtain the housing sub- 
sidies and technological develop- 
ments that are soon forthcoming.

Prof. Gets $41,000 Grant 

The separation of molecules on 
the basis of molecular size is be- 
ing investigated by Dr. Roger S. 
Porter, head of the University of 
Massachusetts polymer science 
and engineering department, under 
a $41,000 National Science Foun- 
dation Grant. 

The study wiU involve use of 
porous polymers, gels and glasses 
to induce the separation of mole- 
cular mixtures on the basis of size. 
The porous materials are support- 
ed in columns and molecular mix- 
tures are then washed through the 
columns and emerge in order of 
decreasing size. 

The goal of Dr. Porter's inves- 
tigation involves developing im- 
provements in the separation pro- 
cess, particularly for obtaining de- 
fined materials of high molecular 
weight in the range normally con- 
sidered to be polymers. "The 
results will have meaning in de- 
fining the properties of modern 
plastics and new methods may also 
provide a determination of compo- 
sitions for low molecular weight 
mixtures of organic compounds," 
he explained.

This is the second NSF grant 
Dr. Porter has received since 
coming to the University to head 
the polymer science and engineer- 
ing program in 1966. His first 
NSF grant for personal research 
involves the flow characteristics of 
partially crystalline polymers. Dr. 
Porter has also obtained two grants 
for the polymer science and engin- 
eering program from the NSF for 
purchase of scientific instrumen- 
tation and the development of two 
graduate laboratory courses. 

Dr. Porter also has two addition- 
al federal grants, one for studies 
of energy- induced changes of pol- 
ymer molecular weight dis- 
tribution, supported by the U.S. Ar- 
my-Durham, and a National In- 
stitutes of Health grant for the 
study of mesophases formed by 
steroid systems. 

He received his bachelor's de- 
gree in chemistry from the Uni- 
versity of California at Los An- 
geles and his Ph.D. in chemistry 
at tue University of Washington, 
then spent 10 years with Chev- 
ron Research Company in the San 
Francisco Bay area before join- 
ing the University. He is the au- 
thor of 100 original contributions, 
book chapters and review arti- 
cles, predominantly in the fields 
of order and flow of liquid crys- 
tals and in the characterization 
and rheology of polymers.

The Day Company A Refused to Fight the 


nam (AP) - "I am sorry, sir, but 
my men refuse to go - we cannot 
move out," Lt. Eugene Shurtz Jr. 
reported to his battallion com- 
mander over a crackling field 

"A" Company of the 196th Light 
Infantry Brigade's battle- torn 3rd 
Battalion had been ordered at dawn 
yesterday to move once more down 
the jungled rocky slope of Nui Lon 
Mountain into a deadly labyrinth 
of North Vietnamese bunkers and 
trench lines. 

For five days they had obeyed 
orders to make this push. Each 
time they had been driven back by 
the invisible enemy who waited 
through the rain of bombs and ar- 
tillery shells for the Americans 
to come close, then picked them 
off with deadly crossfire. 

The battalion commander, Lt. 
Col Robert C. Bacon, had been 
waiting impatiently for A Com- 
pany to move out. Bacon lwd taken 
over the battalion after Lt. Col. 
Eli J. Howard was hilled in a 
helicopter crash with Associated 
Press photographer Oliver Noonan 
and six other men. Ever since 
the crash Tuesday, the battalion 
had been trying to reach the wreck- 

Yesterday, Bacon was personlly 
leading three of his companies in 
the assault. He paled as Shurtz 
matter- of- factly told him that the 
soldiers of A Company would not 
foUow orders. 

"Repeat that please," the col- 
onel asked without raising his 
voice. "Have you told them what 
it means to disobey orders under 

"I think they understand," the 
lieutenant replied, "but some of 
them simply had enough - they are 
broken. There are boys here who 
have only 90 days left in Vietnam. 
They want to go home i n one 
piece. The situation is psychic 


"Are you talking about enlisted 
men or are the NCOs also in- 
volved?" the colonel asked. 

"That's the difficulty here," 
Shurtz said. "We've got a leader- 
ship problem. Most of our squad 
and platoon leaders have been kil- 
led or wounded." 

A Company at one point in the 
fight was down to 60 men - half 
its assigned combat strength. 

Quietly the colonel told Shurtz: 
"Go talk to them again and tell 
them that to the best of our know- 
ledge the bunkers are now empty- 
the enemy has withdrawn. The 
mission of A Company today is to 
recover their dead. They have no 
reason to be afraid. Please take 
a hand count of how many really 
do not want to go." 

The lieutenant came back a few 
minutes later: "They won't go, 
colonel, and I did not ask for the 
hand count because I am afraid 
that they all stick together even 
though some might prefer to go." 

The colonel told him: "Leave 
these men on the hill and take 
your CP (command post) element 
and move to the objective." 

The lieutenant said he was pre- 
paring to move and asked: 

"What do we do with the am- 
munition supplies? Shal we destroy 

"Leave it with them," the 
colonel ordered. 

Then Bacon told his executive 
officers, Maj. Richard Waite, and 
one of his seasoned Vietnam vet- 

erans, Sgt. Okey Blakenship of 
Panther, W. Va., to fly from the 
battalion base "LZ Center" a- 
cross the valley to talk with the 
reluctant troops of A Company. 

"Give them a pep talk and a 
kick in the butt" he said. 

They found the men bearded and 
exhausted in the tall backened ele- 
phant grass, their uniforms ripped 
and caked with dirt. 

"One of them was crying," said 

Then the soldiers told why they 
would not move. 

'It poured out of them," the 
sergeant said. 

They said they were sick of the 
endless battling in torrid hear, the 
constant danger of sudden fire- 
fights by day and the mortaring 
and enemy probing at night. They 
said they had not enough sleep 
and that they were being pushed 
too hard. They hadn't had mail. 

They hadn't had hot food. They 
hadn't had the little things that 
made the war bearable. 

Helicopters brought in the basic 
needs of ammunition, food and 
water at a tremendous risk be- 
cause of the heavy enemy ground 
fire. But this was not enough for 
these men. They believed that 
they were in danger of annihila- 
tion and would go no farther. 

Waite and Blakenship heard them 
out. looking at the soldiers, most 
of them a generation apart, draf- 
tees 19 and 20 with fear in their 

Blakenship, a quick-tempered 
man, began arguing. 

'•One of them yelled to me that 
his company had suffered too much 
and that it should not have to go 

on," Blakenship said. "I answered 
him that another company was down 
to 15 men still on the move - and 
I lied to him - and he asked me, 
"Why did they do it?" 

"Maybe they have got some- 
thing a little more that what you 
have got," the sergeant replied. 

"Don't call us cowards, we are 
not cowards," the soldier cried, 
running toward Blakenship with his 
fists raised. 

Blakenship turned his back and 
walked down the bomb- scarred 
ridge line to where the company 
commander waited. 

The sergeant looked back and 
saw that the men of A Company 
were stirring. They picked up 
their rifles, feU into a loose for- 
mations and followed him down the 
cratered slope. 

A Company went back to the war. 

UM News Briefs 


The Statesman made a mistake last week, when it reported that ad- 
ministrator Richard W. Story caught a cold while frolicing in a Sunder- 
land pond. The red bearded administrator actually contracted the til- 
ness in a pond in Goshen, and eyewitness Dave Stevens reports that 
Story was retrieving a floating object while frolicing. As of this Monday, 
the administrator still had a stuffy nose. 

With the summer coming to an end, the Statesman sports staff 
thought that an outstanding achievement award should be given to the 

?>rson who contributed the most to making this an unforgetable summer, 
he winner of the award is Mike the Polka man, whose taste in music 
drove hoards of people from the little hatch in Southwest, and who may 
have made perrogies one of UMass' favorite dishes. 

Daily Collegian Sports Editor, Peter Pascarelli dropped by this week 
on the way home from New York and enthused on the Patroits. "Ron 
Sellers reminds me a lot of Oscar Lofton, while Hammond is a dead 
ringer for Butch Songin." 

While on the subject of football, Pascarelli comments on the Red- 
man's upcoming season. "They sould be quite a bit faster than last 
year's team, and there's no question that they'll best last year's 2-8 

There was a lot of excitement around the Statesman sports desk 
this summer as the staff watched a new roof being put on the cage. 
The new top will be made cut of oatmeal instead of glass. The struc- 
ture should be finished in time for the Homecoming concerts this fall. 

Tournament Winners 


The summer ping-pong tourney 
was recently completed at the Berk 
shire commons. The tournament 
was played under the double elim- 
ination system which allows each 
contestant two losses before having 
to drop out. The winner was 
Eng-fl Chang. The highlight ofthe 
tourney was the grueling match be- 
tween Chang and Conway Redding.

A Whiff of Mutiny in Vietnam 

In every American war there 
have been isolated incidents of 
mutiny among the troops. It is 
the tragic human patteni. There 
is a breaking point where dis- 
cipline, duty and even loyalty to 
the men at your side are over- 
whelmed by fear and death and 
a paralyzing feeling of the sense- 
lessness ofthe whole bloody oper- 
ation. And we are now getting a 
glimpse of it in Vietnam. 

Horst Faas and Peter Arnett 
of The Associated Press, two of 
the most courageous reporters of 
the Vietnam war, have now report- 
ed such an incident by men of 
Company A of the 196th Light 
Infantry Brigade's battle-weary 
Third Battalion in the Songchang 
Valley, and the surprising thing 
is that there has not been more 
of this sort of thing under the pres- 
ent circumstances of the war. 
Consider the position of the men 
of Company A. Most of them were 
nineteen- and twenty- year- olds, 
drafted into the Army. For five 
days they had obeyed orders to 
move down a jungled glen against 
an enemy concealed in underground 
bunkers. Most of their squad 
and platoon leaders had been killed 
or wounded. In the repeated at- 
tacks on the bunkers, Company A 
was down to sixty men. half its 
assigned combat strength, some 
of them in the last days of their 
year's tour of duty in Vietnam. 
This is not, of course, a typ- 
ical situation. Yet it must give 
President Nixon something to think 
about as he plans his Vietnam pol- 

He has been worried about the 
revolt ofthe voters against the war, 
and even about a revolt of the 
generals if be humiliates them 
by pulling out too fast, but now 
he also has to consider the pos- 
sibility of a revolt of the men 


if he risks their lives in a war 
he has decided to bring to a 

This is a devilish problem for 
everybody concerned, but parti- 
cularly for men who find them- 
selves in the position of Company 
A. The President is no longer 
saying that military victory in 
Vietnam is "vital" to the nation- 
al interest. He is not claiming 
that a compromise or even a de- 
feat in Vietnam would result in 
the "loss" of Southeast Asia. In 
fact, he is not only withdrawing 
troops from Saigon but opening 
talks for the withdrawal of Am- 
erican troops from Thailand. 

Accordingly, battles for bunk- 
ers in the Songchang Valley are 
tactical moves in the President's 
strategy of retreat. He is asking 
Company A to fight for time to 
negotiate a settlement with Hanoi 
that will save his face but may 
very well lose their lives. He 
is also carrying on the battle in 
the belief, or pretense, that the 
South Vietnamese will really be 
able to defend their country and 
our democratic objectives when we 
withdraw, and even his own gen- 
erals don't believe the South Vi- 
etnamese will do it. It is a typ- 
ical political strategy and the real- 
ly surprising thing is that there 
have been so few men, like the 
tattered remnants of Company A, 
who have refused to die for it. 

At some point, the President is 
going to have to recognize that 
there is a fundamental difference 
between his policy of withdrawing 
gracefully from the war, and end- 
ing the war. The difference be- 
tween what is graceful and what is 
decisive in ending the war is a great 
men in Company A, and while this 
may not produce a revolt among 
the young Americans in the Army 
in Vietnam, it will almost certain- 
ly produce a revolt among their 

contemporaries in the universities 
at home. 

The President is now said to 
be delaying the withdrawal of an- 
other 25,000 or 50,000 men from 
Vietnam because the enemy is 
pressing the battle, and not nego- 
tiating seriously in Paris. The 
suggestion is that unless Hanoi 
cuts the fighting and starts making 
concessions at the peace table, 
he will keep all the Americans 
there and may even increase the 
level of the fighting. 

But nobody should be fooled by 
this. He is delaying his announce- 
ment about withdrawing more 
troops from Vietnam, according 
to our information, not to influ- 
ence the enemy, but to influence 
the American university students 
just before the start of the new 
school year. And the irony of 
this is that it won't work - or 
at least won't work for long. 

For the more the President 
says he's for peace, the more 
trocps he withdraws from Vietnam 
and Thailand, the more he con- 
cedes that Southeast Asia is not 
really vital to the security of the 
United States, the harder it is to 
ask for the lives of the men of 
Company A. 

They may not be typical, but they 
are a symbol of his coming di- 
lemma. He wants out on the in- 
stallment plan, but the weekly 
installments are the lives of one 
or two hundred American soldiers, 
and he cannot get away from the 
insistent question: Why? To 
what purpose? The breaking point 
comes in politics as it came to 
Company A and it is not far 
off. What will now be gained by 
this incessant killing? And how 
will the President or anybody else 
explain or excuse it?

Word has just reached Amherst that Metawampee will return to the 
MDC back page for the upcoming grid season. The aged warrier was 
feared lost in Omaha after the college world series this spring, but 
a kindly sheriff pointed the Indian in the right direction and Meta- 
wampee is due home at any moment. It was feared for a time that stiff 
competition from Elinor Kaine might drive the bard underground but 
the poet is brave, and will return. 

At the beginning of the summr. the Statesman Sports staff picked 
Dean's Team to run away with the inter mural soft ball title, and we were 
almost right. Havard's Hustlers obliterated Dean's Team 1-0, dispite 
the unbelievable efforts of Bob Twiss. 

UMass-Boston Gains "Two Old Friends" 

A five round chess tournament 
was played last week in the Berk- 
shire club room. Robert Pribush, 
the tournament director, utilized 
the Swiss System which pits play- 
ers with the same scores against 
each other for each round of play. 
Tieing for first place were Ron 
Burris and Richard Lees. This 
duplicated their prior tie for first 
in the tournament held by the chess 
club during the winter. Tieing for 
second place were A. Farazdeland 
Jim Sheppard. 

BOSTON - Two old college fri- 
ends , one an executive assistant 
to the mayor of Boston and the 
other a journalist from Kenya, 
will be reunited at the University 
of Massachusetts/Boston politics 
department this fall. 

Barney Frank of Boston and 
Hilary Ng'weno of Nairobi know 
each other well at Harvard Uni- 
versity and will be colleagues 
beginning in September at UMass/ 
Boston. Both will be part-time 
instructors, Frank leading a sem- 
inar in urban power structures 
and Ng'weno teaching a course in 
African politics. 

Frank has been executive as- 
sistant to Boston Mayor Kevin 
H. White for the past year, and 
is a student of public policy for- 
mation. He is a member of the 
Massachusetts A. D. A. Senate 
Board of Directors. 

While doing graduate work at 
Harvard, he was director of stu- 
dent activities at the Institute of 
Politics of the John F. Kennedy 
School from 1966-67, and was a 
teaching fellow in government at 
Harvard from 1963 to 1967. He 
received his A. B. degree from 
Harvard in 1961. 

Ng'weno is presently the East 
African correspondent for the 
Manchester Guardian. In the past 
he has served as Editor of the 

"Daily Nation" in Nairobi and as 
managing director of the Franklin 
Book programs in East Africa. 
An acknowledged expert on 
African politics and culture, Ng'- 
weno is presently completing a 
novel based on the events in Kenya 
during the first few months of 
the Mau Mau rebellion. He has 
been a fellow at the Center for 
International Affairs at Harvard 
and received his A. B. degree 
from Harvard in 1962. 

Senate Keeps MDC Editor 

The Summer Senate last night, 
in a farewell gesture to a very 
productive season, voted unani- 
mously NOT to expel chronic non- 
attender Don Epstein. 

Epstein, who thinks very little 
of the Summer legislative body, 

had challenged the Senate to expel 
him, but they failed to do so. The 
Senate, considering the mileage 
Epstein would have made from 
the expulsion, decided not to give 
him the satisfaction of the ex- 
pulsion vote.
